When you consult with an attorney at Russell & Lazarus APC, your attorney will help you decide whether a lawsuit is necessary to preserve your claim. Depending on factors inherent in your claim and the insurance company involved, a lawsuit may be inevitable.
Some insurance companies have a reputation of refusing to settle smaller claims or those involving primarily soft tissue injuries. Your Newport Beach personal injury attorney will analyze your claim to determine if its potential value is smaller. This can sometimes be the case if the injuries you sustained are primarily soft tissue. If so, the company, as a matter of policy, may refuse settlement and force you into litigation. If so, you must have a personal injury attorney willing to go the distance and litigate your case if necessary.
Insurance companies know just as much about the reputation of lawyers as the lawyers do about them. You need a personal injury attorney with the experience and willingness to go to bat for you in court if the need arises. The adjuster may refuse to negotiate with lawyers with very little courtroom experience.
The personal injury attorneys at Russell & Lazarus APC will put their years of experience to work for you. Call 949-851-0222 to set up an appointment.
