Can You Talk To Insurance Yourself?

After an accident, you might be wondering, “Can I talk to insurance myself?”

You certainly can, but I wouldn’t recommend it in the same way I wouldn’t have a brain surgeon perform heart surgery on me.

Think about it this way. Think about how many attorneys that the insurance company has. Don’t you think you should have at least one?

The other thing I don’t think people consider is, you certainly can negotiate with the insurance company, but while they’ve spent billions of dollars to convince you that they’re your friend and they’re on your side working for you, they’re not.

They’re interested in paying you as little as possible as quickly as possible so that they can mitigate their risk and so they can get rid of this case.

Your best interest is to speak to an expert who negotiates every single day professionally, which is what a personal injury lawyer really does.

You see a lot of the TV lawyering, and that’s the fun stuff right in front of a jury or in court.

I love that stuff, don’t get me wrong, but the majority of my time is spent professionally negotiating with insurance companies to get them to do the right thing.
