My friend got into a car accident. She’s not sure if she should hire an attorney. What should I tell her?
If she was injured or the car was damaged, then the answer is, ‘yes.’ Folks need to know their rights as soon as possible and it’s always free to call us and find out. Remember, the insurance companies are not your friends. They want you to take as little as possible, as fast as possible. They call it ‘go away money.’
Injured people are at a disadvantage when the go up against insurance companies because they don’t know how the system works. When they deal directly with insurance companies, sometimes they end up damaging their case to a point where a lawyer can’t help them. It’s like that time I tried to fix my own dishwasher. I watched a YouTube video on it; it seemed easy enough. After I took it all apart, though, I needed to buy a new dishwasher because I had done so much damage.
