In certain situations, a person may not need a lawyer to help them with
their personal injury claim. This is almost always limited to situations
in which the injuries are very minimal or most of the claim deals with
property damage, such as vehicle repairs after a
car accident. In almost every other case, an attorney is critical to maximize your
recovery and ensure that you are justly compensated for your injuries
Oftentimes, our clients are told by the insurance carriers not to hire
a lawyer because they will "only take some of your money." This
ignores the fact that insurance companies
- do not have your best interests at heart;
- will not tell you about other coverages which may be applicable to your case;
- will not work on your behalf to reduce the amount paid to health insurers
or other parties that might have an interest in your recovery;
- will not work to maximize your recovery to determine whether you may have
future medical care, whether you have additional wage losses that are
- or maximize your compensation for pain and suffering.
Since 1980, the attorneys of Palmer Law Group LLP have been dedicated to
achieving the maximum recovery possible for its clients. Due to the ever-changing
climate of personal injury law, a lawyer's role is critical in not
only maximizing the amount of your gross settlement or verdict, but minimizing
the portion of that recovery that has to be paid back to other providers
due to liens and subrogation interests.
Finally, insurance companies know that people who are unrepresented by
an attorney cannot file a lawsuit and hold them accountable in a court
of law. The threat of litigation itself is often sufficient to increase
the value of your claim. The attorneys of Palmer Law Group LLP have the
knowledge, resources and experience to take your case to trial. Due to
our firm's extensive experience in settling and trying cases, insurance
companies know that when we take a case we are willing to invest the time
and resources into the case to see it all the way through trial. This
helps increase the settlement value of even our cases that don't go to trial.
In order to maximize your net recovery, you need an experienced attorney
to work on your behalf. By hiring an attorney, you can keep the focus
of your life where it should be - on you or your loved one's health
and physical recovery.
Our clients often tell us after an accident that they are inundated with
confusing paperwork and phone calls from various insurance companies.
This makes the rehabilitation process for most of our clients more stressful
and difficult. We feel that one important role of an attorney is to manage
the details of your claim, including communicating and negotiating with
all insurance companies and lien holders so that our clients only need
to worry about the only thing they can control, which is getting better.
