Securing Help Before Settling a Case

If you are filing for a medical malpractice lawsuit, or for any similar litigation, you might reach a settlement with the insurance company and your case will not go on trial. But making such a decision on your own might result in a big loss for you. Be sure to call a lawyer before you settle, if you will want the fullest compensation possible. The law firm of Kirsch Gelband & Stone can help you protect your rights.

Whether you are hoping for a settlement for an automobile accident, a settlement on defective products or a settlement on other personal injuries, you should have an experienced negotiator on your side. Insurance companies sometimes try to take advantage of people without attorneys.

Difficulties with Insurance Companies

When it comes to medical malpractice lawsuits or similar litigation, Insurance companies are typically not your friends. They are in the business of making money. They want to pay you the least amount of money as possible. Their adjusters might seem compassionate to your suffering, and be pleasant to you, but they do not get ahead in their jobs by giving you more money than the minimum with which they can get away. They have often been trained in programs put together by top insurance negotiators and attorneys who know the law as well as psychology. Do you really want to face them without a lawyer?

Insurance companies don’t want you to hire a lawyer for medical malpractice settlements, because they know that if you do, they will have to pay more. They can tell you things that you might believe, but your attorney will know otherwise.

Until you have an attorney, the insurance companies will lessen the compensation amount for your case. They also might not tell you about the other things for which you have the right to be compensated, like past and future medial treatment, past and future wage loss, pain, suffering, disability impairment, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Insurance companies earn interest on the money they hold. It is in their best interest not to settle your case quickly, unless they are settling it cheaply. If you are thinking they are giving you a good deal, think again.

When considering an insurance settlement for your litigation, make sure to contact an attorney first. The Newark law firm of Kirsch Gelband & Stone provides you with full clarity regarding potential settlements. They treat you with respect and help you attain the best possible compensation for your case.
