Can I negotiate my own insurance claim?

Let’s say you are involved in a car crash. Do you work with the insurance company to try to resolve your claim or do you hire a lawyer to help you? Well, it depends.

The best advice I could give you is to talk to a lawyer. You very well may be able to resolve the claim on your own with the insurance company, but in order to do that, you need to know your rights under the law.  Otherwise, you might get taken advantage of.

I’ve had many people come to me after trying to work out the claim on their own, only to run into problems. Sometimes those problems arose because they were not sure what rights they had, what they could ask for, or what they could seek. The insurance company wants to resolve your claim, but they want to do so on terms that are favorable or advantageous to them. The claim is yours so take control of it.

It never costs you anything to speak with me and ask me questions that you have about your claim. You get to decide whether you want to hire me or you want to try to tackle the claim on your own. Let’s chat.
