“The lawyers at Davis & Gelshenen really know personal injury law. Everything they predicted the insurance company would do, it did. It was like they were reading the insurance adjuster’s mind.”~Davis & Gelshenen Client
When you have been involved in an accident, it’s difficult to know what to do to ensure your rights are protected. The lawyers at Davis & Gelshenen have decades of experience with personal injury cases and can help you navigate the complexities involved with insurance companies, medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
How much will a lawyer cost?
Personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis, meaning you don’t pay a thing unless you recover a settlement from the insurance company. In short, you don’t pay unless you win. And oftentimes using a lawyer can help you recover more than you would have if you had tried to handle your case without a lawyer.
When does your case necessitate hiring a lawyer?
Calling a lawyer immediately after an accident will help ensure your rights are not compromised. Hiring a lawyer does not necessarily mean you will “sue” someone. Your lawyer will help you investigate all the facts of your accident and understand the complex language involved in your policy and in the law. Davis & Gelshenen lawyers are trained and experienced in dissecting insurance policies and contracts, and in asking the right questions of the insurance companies, doctors, witnesses and involved parties. Your Davis & Gelshenen lawyer will work for you to get you an equitable settlement… or to take your case to trial if needed to get fair results.
How to handle insurance companies
Be wary of speaking with insurance companies after an accident. Don’t be lured by their promises of “fast money”; it might not be enough to adequately compensate you for your injuries and damages. Additionally, be careful of the statements you make to the insurance companies. They are anxious to get you to agree quickly on a settlement. They also will take copious notes on everything you say in search of a statement that may compromise your position if you ultimately decide to sue. It’s always best to have an attorney assist in this process and protect your rights.
