Why Do You Need an Attorney?

Insurance Scams

It’s really no secret that insurance companies are not in the business of paying claims. If they make a settlement offer, it’s usually immediately following the accident, with little knowledge of the victim’s injuries or losses. This means that the offers are low and won’t even come close to covering all the victim’s needs. Sometimes their offers are downright insulting. Other times, they don’t make an offer at all, arguing that the victims claim is invalid.

Unfortunately, the scared and hurting victim often takes these initial offers, not realizing that they are entitled to so much more. Of course, this is what the insurance companies are hoping for. They want you to take their low offer so they can be done with your claim as quickly as possible. Once you accept their payment, you cannot go back and file a new claim, or sue for more money.

Hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent you and your family is the only way to ensure that your rights are protected and that your settlement is fair.

Bigger Settlements

According to a study performed by the Insurance Research Council, personal injury claimants who had legal representation received settlements that were 3 ½ times larger than victims who filed their own claim! This could mean thousands more dollars in your pocket for recovery, if not more.

Why are our personal injury attorneys able to help victims get so much more money?

Personal injury claims and lawsuits are incredibly complex. It takes specialized training, skills, and knowledge to successfully navigate the process without missing critical steps. We know the laws inside-and-out, but we also make it our business to constantly educate ourselves, so we stay on top of current trends and changes in the law so that nothing gets missed.

Insurance companies will take advantage of a victim who doesn’t know their rights and it’s not uncommon for them to strongarm or intimidate. But they know they can’t do that with us. We’re resilient and will put pressure on the insurance companies with sound evidence, research, and legal analyses.

It takes more than knowledge of the law and tough talk to win a personal injury case. If the insurance company is putting up a fight and refuses to pay a fair settlement for your claim, we’ll be prepared to go to court. We know how to build a rock-solid case, undeniably prove fault, and thoroughly convince a jury that the insurance company is in the wrong.

Bottom Line

The bottom line is that insurance companies often play hardball with injury victims. Our Calgary injury lawyers have the skills and dedication to protect you from their unfair strategies and get you the compensation you truly deserve.

Insurance companies detest paying claims, and in the instances where they make settlement offers, they do it with little or no knowledge of the victim’s injuries and losses. This results in low offers that may not cover all your needs. Hiring a personal injury lawyer is the only way to get a fair settlement and protect yourself from these situations. Clients who had legal representation receive on average settlements that were 3.5 times larger than victims who filed their own claim.

We understand that injuries are more than just physical, they take a toll mentally, emotionally, and financially on both you and your immediate family.

If you or someone you know has been wrongfully injured during an accident in any way, we will work for you. The issues that arise as a result of the accident may lead to lifelong health issues, loss of income, substantial medical expenses, reduced quality of life or even loss of a loved one. This is why our award-winning Calgary personal injury lawyers specialize in accidents, injuries, and wrongful death wants you to understand that the law is on your side and you have every right to seek justice and compensation for your suffering.

You need to inform your insurance company as well as the other party’s insurance company of the accident as soon as possible. It is okay to give them basic information but do not admit any wrongdoing on your part or accept any settlement offers. Your legal team will take over any interaction from that point henceforth.

After being involved in an accident and obtaining a personal injury, the first thing you should do is take photos of your injuries and record any other information that may be important. Next, if necessary, visit a doctor and follow their recommendations for recovery and attend any follow-up appointments. Make sure to record the events surrounding the accident while it’s still fresh in your memory including a list of all possible witnesses and their contact information if you have it. Following this, be sure to adhere to any additional instructions from your personal injury lawyer.

Although most car accidents are resolved without the need for a trial, in some cases, such as one where an insurance company is being difficult or unreasonable, it may be necessary to go to trial to ensure you receive the proper compensation you deserve. We work to ensure that you are comfortable with every outcome, but ultimately the final decision is always left up to our clients whether to go to trial for an injury case.

In Alberta, there is a general 2-year limitation period for personal injury cases. What this means is that if you do not file a lawsuit with the Court within two years from the date you received the injury, then you will not be able to engage in the process of beginning a claim. However, the personal injury lawyers at Martin G. Schulz and Associates can help you maneuver through this process, even when a significant amount of time has passed since your accident.
