Have you ever been in a car accident? Did the insurance company procrastinate over the settlement afterward? If you don’t have the help of an experienced Folsom car accident lawyer, then you could receive far less than you deserve from insurance settlements.
Car accidents happen every day, especially in a bustling city like Sacramento. Just because you pay a monthly insurance premium is no guarantee that the insurance will offer you a fair settlement after an accident. Do you have an attorney to help you in this situation?
If you’re interested in being treated fairly, then you’ll want to invest 20 minutes to listen to this edition of The Law Show Sacramento where your host Angel Birch interviews The Law Office of Black & DePaoli, PC about what happens when your insurance will not settle after an automobile accident.
Any time you enter an automobile you risk being in an accident. The Sacramento Area Council of Governments* reported that from 2003 to 2007, the city averaged over 11,000 accidents annually. This interview is a chance to learn what to do if the insurance won’t settle afterward.
Benefits of Having a Well-Rounded Lawyer
The episode kicks off with Travis sharing information about his background, not just with legal matters, but also with law enforcement and working for insurance companies directly. He also explains how he uses this knowledge to the benefit of his clients.
Having a well-rounded lawyer gives you an advantage because it means having someone on your side who speaks the insurance company’s language and knows how the tricks they use to try and manipulate their customers.
If you are involved in an accident, then trying on your own to get the insurance company to settle could add more stress to the situation than almost any other type of pain or suffering.
Knowing What to Expect From Your Lawyer
Next Travis explains what you should expect from your lawyer if your insurance will not settle after an automobile accident. He also provides answers to these questions:
- Why shouldn’t I file a lawsuit without the help of an attorney?
- How does having an attorney affect the amount of the settlement?
- What can I expect to happen after my lawyer files a lawsuit?
Now ask yourself two questions: Do I need help getting my insurance company to settle? Could I use the help of a lawyer if I ever find myself in this situation? If you answered “Yes” to either question, then after this podcast visit Travis Black’s website for more information.
Why You Need an Attorney for Your Lawsuit
Travis then uses information gleaned from his past experiences as an insurance adjustor and current role as a lawyer to explain how a Folsom car accident lawyer can continue helping once your lawsuit is filed.
Sacramento residents spend so much time in their vehicles, whether in rural areas just outside the city or driving along its busy highways. A lawyer can help you from the moment the accident occurs until the settlement has been reached.
There are so many steps to getting a settlement from your insurance company – doctor visits, arbitration, mediation. What’s stopping you from obtaining the services of a lawyer to help you through it?
The episode wraps up with Travis sharing some additional information about how he represents clients when the insurance will not settle after an automobile accident.
