Andy Purcell, Senior Associate at Spiros Law, P.C. was recently featured on 92.7 WVLI radio station. While on air, Andy discussed the importance of turning to an attorney for all your personal injury matters, rather than an insurance adjuster. Andy explains that often times insurance adjusters claim that they are there to help you, but the truth is that you are one of hundreds of claims they are dealing with. Therefore, the adjuster is looking to close out your claim as soon as possible. This involves making quick settlement offers before you even know the extent of your injuries.
Andy recommends that injured victims contact an attorney prior to speaking with an insurance adjuster. Often times clients come to the attorneys at Spiros Law with an offer from an insurance company, and many individuals believe it to be a substantial offer. However, because the offer was made so early, you may still have more medical treatments and bills to be accounted for in the future. With an attorney, you will have someone on your side there to work with you throughout the entire process, allowing you to focus on your injuries while they get you the results you need to fully recover.
Andy ends by explaining that it doesn’t cost you anything out of pocket to contact an attorney at Spiros Law, as our attorneys are not paid unless they recover something on your behalf.
