It is natural to think that a person who causes you harm or their insurance company will fully compensate you for your injury. Unfortunately, full compensation is a rarity. Insurance companies have been the beneficiaries of huge profits after they have implemented schemes designed to undercompensate those injured by their insured. Insurance companies know that when a party does not have a lawyer they are ripe to be taken advantage of.
It is certainly possible for the injured party to negotiate with an insurance company themselves, an experienced personal injury lawyer will know how to build your case, negotiate it with an insurance company, and if necessary, litigate the issues at trial. A lawyer is in a good position to help you obtain a favorable settlement that will greatly exceed what an injured party could have achieved on their own.
