Information is Essential
It is typically a misconception that victims of automobile accidents do not need attorneys. Until the victim of an automobile accident retains an attorney, the insurance company knows that the person they are dealing with is not currently prepared to take his or her case to court and is unlikely to offer fair compensation.
Today, given the stigmas attached with exercising one's legal right - especially when insurance companies routinely offer little or nothing for an accident unless the injured party has retained counsel - it is not uncommon for many victims injured in car accidents to attempt to negotiate directly with the insurance carrier themselves. In most instances, the individual is first met with superficial concern by the carrier, who then proceeds to build a case against the victim.
Most insurance companies work with a select group of doctors who, unfortunately, tend to reach the same conclusions in virtually all cases – which is that little or no injury has been sustained. The carrier will typically have a recorded statement regarding cause of the accident, it will have had you examined by "their" doctors, and it will be in a position to justify why your claim is worth much less than it should be worth. And while this is not always the case where very serious injury has taken place, even then causation for the injury is often disputed, as is extent and need for future care.
In the end, the injured victim of a car accident attempting to negotiate with the insurance carrier on their own typically learns the quick reality that insurance companies position almost always position themselves towards collecting insurance dollars, not paying out claims.
