Do I need a lawyer to deal with my own insurance company? by Patricia Santucci
It depends. The insurance adjuster under your own auto policy is responsible to help process and secure the benefits that you need in order to get better. Often the insurance company will discourage you from seeking out a lawyer’s services. This may put you at a disadvantage because you may not understand all of the benefits available to you. It is not uncommon for the insurance company to tell you that your injuries are minor and therefore don’t need a lawyer. If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident it is important for you to consult with a lawyer so that you may understand the potential value of your case and the benefits to which you may be entitled.
