Personal Injury Commercial
The insurance company’s prerogative is to resolve the matter on terms favorable to them (denying, delaying or defending or minimizing your recovery). By denying and delaying your recovery, that means more time they have to invest their money and earn profits.
Therefore, it is important for you to be vigilant and exercise caution when presented with a settlement offer. Be proactive and know your rights. Many people may give you their opinions, for example, of where to go and what to do, but you need a credible opinion.
Although you do not have to be represented by a personal injury lawyer, it has a number of benefits. A lawyer can: handle the complicated paperwork; deal with the insurance company so you don’t have to; pursue your claim so you can focus on getting better; identify and assemble evidence; and explain the options to you and recommend the best course of action.
Four factors to look for in hiring a personal injury lawyer are: level of experience; their staff; their legal strategy; and their fees. You would want your lawyer to have accumulated experience in handling personal injury claims from start to finish, and who has actually taken claims to trial –as Ben Azimi has. A firm may have a lot of staff but, if they take on a large number of cases, their workload may be overloaded or they my delegate tasks to paralegals – whereas Ben Azimi personally oversees all his client’s files. You would want your lawyer to be capable of negotiating but also taking a matter to trial if the insurance company is not willing to offer a fair settlement – Ben Azimi is ready, willing and able to do so, and has a track record of doing just that. Lastly, most personal injury lawyers take on claims on a contingency basis (not being paid unless you do) as well as a free no obligation initial consult. Ben Azimi does too.
