Can hiring a personal injury lawyer increase the offer from the insurance company?

After your accident, it is very likely that the other side’s insurance company will make you an offer to settle your claim.  If you believe the offer is fair and the insurance company has treated you correctly, there might not be too much to think about. However, if you think their offer is lower than what you consider acceptable, you might wonder what your legal options are and if hiring a personal injury attorney will help you get a higher offer.

At the Anderson Law Firm, our Fort Worth personal injury lawyers have more than 40 years of combined experience helping accident victims. Our attorneys know how to get you the most for your injury claim and are skilled at negotiating with the insurance company.

Having a Lawyer Gives Your Leverage

By hiring a personal injury attorney to handle your claim, it gives your case leverage. The insurance company takes claimants who have legal representation more seriously than those who do not. This means they are less likely to low-ball you with an offer and if they do, your attorney will be there to negotiate it up or take your case to court where a jury will decide what is fair.

If you’re worried about the cost of hiring an injury attorney, don’t be. Accident attorneys work on what is called a contingency fee. That means if they don’t win your case, you won’t have to pay. The Anderson Law Firm is top-rated by our former clients – just read our testimonial page.
