If you were injured in an accident in Hercules, CA, you need to think carefully about what you do next. Many accident victims try to work with an insurance company themselves. They try to deal with their recovery, the medical bills, and the insurance adjuster’s questions without help. Unfortunately, this leaves them vulnerable. An insurer may deny their claim, perform bad faith practices, or force them into a low settlement. To avoid the problems that often arise in accident and injury claims, you can hire a Hercules personal injury lawyer. By having an attorney, you have someone to deal with the insurance claim process. You can concentrate on your recovery instead of the paperwork and red tape. You improve your chance of receiving a pre-trial settlement, and you improve the possibility of maximizing your compensation. More than 5,000 individuals and families have chosen us to help them after an accident, and we are proud to say we have obtained them more than $300 million in settlements and verdicts.
