Having worked as lawyers for years, we know that no matter how nice insurance adjusters sound on the phone, they have one goal in mind above all others–to pay you as little as possible.
Insurance companies do not work for you. They rarely help you figure out your legal rights, and may not fully understand them. Most importantly, they rarely give you a fair assessment of the value of your case.
One of the nation’s largest insurance companies actually stated that personal injury cases are a “Zero Sum Economic Game” and that in order for the insurance company to “win” that YOU must lose.
It has recently been proven (based on internal insurance company documents) what we have known for years, that insurance companies will push you to accept quick settlements without the help of lawyers. If you try to fight for more money without the help of a lawyer, you will face insurance company attorneys who to refuse to negotiate with you and will drag the case out for years in the hope of forcing you to settle for a small fraction of your cases worth. That same national insurance company acknowledged that when injured people hire lawyers, the insurance company an average pays 50% more to injured parties.
There are several reasons why one of Collison Law Offices’ lawyers can help you. The insurance companies know that they can’t push us around and that we will fight for your rights. We will seek every category of damages that applies to your case, and find ways to support those damages with evidence that will be admissible in court to ensure that you receive a just and fair recovery.
