Insurance adjusters are extremely skilled at using tactics designed to minimize the payout you receive from the provider. Remember that the adjuster works for the insurance company–their primary goal is to save the company money rather than giving you the best settlement. Experienced injury attorneys understand the law, what elements of damages you are entitled to receive compensation for, know what evidence is required to prove each element and  are experienced in negotiating with adjusters.  Experienced injury attorneys will  not be swayed by many of the tactics utilized by insurance companies meant to minimize payouts.  As a result, we are often able to get cases settled anywhere from 3 to 5 (or more) times more than an individual trying to get their case settled on their own.  If there is any doubt, you should at least discuss your case with an experienced lawyer prior to trying to negotiate with an insurance company as a result. 

The initial investigations conducted by accident lawyers are critical for determining whether the driver was speeding, why the driver failed to take evasive maneuvers to avoid a crash, whether they were in a hurry, whether a driver was working at the time of the crash, determining all potential drivers who may have played a role in the collision, and determining the nature and severity of your injuries or trauma. All of these issues are crucial for arriving at compensation figures.  Experienced injury attorneys have the tools necessary to uncover this type of evidence when available and utilize to the benefit of the injury victims seeking to hold negligent parties accountable.. 

The most important thing you can do when involved in a car crash is to make sure anyone who has been injured gets the medical attention they need right away.  In addition, while still at the scene, the next thing you should do if you are safe and physically able is to take photos of the accident scene, the damage to vehicles or property and the injuries sustained by any parties involved.  These photographs can be very helpful to proving how and why a crash occurred.  Also, collecting the names, contact information and insurance information of any other involved parties or witnesses is also a helpful as some witnesses will not be interviewed by police and their identifies can therefore be lost forever.
