One Important Thing You Should Know
If you or someone you love has been disfigured or left with scars, you should know this one important thing: Get legal help from an experienced attorney. Your lawyer can help you understand the true value of your claim. He or she can negotiate with the insurance company for you, protecting your interests so that you don’t get taken advantage of.
Insurance companies often take advantage of scarring and disfigurement survivors. They force them to make recorded statements before they are ready. They make them ridiculously low offers or they deny coverage, claiming fault on the part of the injured person.
When you are represented by an attorney at our firm, the insurance company is required by law to contact us about your scarring or disfigurement claim. You won’t have to worry about dealing directly with them. Instead, you gain peace of mind that your rights are protected by an experienced advocate.
