Why is a PI Specialist Better Than a General Practice Attorney?
If you have been in an accident it can be difficult to decide on an attorney. You could use a family friend, who usually practices family law or you could call a specialist. A specialist will ease your mind and get you a better settlement.
1. Personal Injury Specialists Will Understand the Value of Your Case Right Off
Personal injury specialist attorneys do nothing but personal injury claims all day. This experience means that most of these attorneys can tell you the approximate value of your case and the strength of your claim during the first appointment. An attorney without that kind of experience will not be able to tell you if your case is worth fighting for.
2. They Have More Negotiating Power
The next benefit of experience is that personal injury attorneys will not get taken for a ride by the insurance companies. These companies have armies of lawyers of their own and are looking out for their bottom lines. Personal injury specialists have dealt with insurance companies day in and day out for years. That means they will not allow the insurance companies to use their most common, but flawed arguments like assigning fault for the accident to you. They won’t accept a lowball offer either. They know the value of the case and will make sure you get a fair settlement.
3. Do Not Worry About the “Friends and Family” Discount
At the Advocates, you do not pay your attorney until you receive a settlement, so there is no need to worry about the cost of your claim. You do not need to sacrifice quality to keep your costs down. The Advocates have the experience to get you the money you deserve, and their experience and connections will help you navigate the financial issues that come injuries and help you avoid collections and medical debt.
