We Help Clients Get Back on Their Feet After Serious Accidents
If you or someone you love was hurt due to another person's negligence, Harris Personal Injury Lawyers can help you seek the compensation you need to cover medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. With many decades in legal practice, our South San Francisco personal injury attorneys have the insight and experience to build your claim, calculate your damages, and handle settlement negotiations on your behalf. If you're falling behind on essential bills, you may be tempted to accept the opposing party's initial settlement offer. Unfortunately, the first offer you receive might not cover the full extent of your damages. Our legal team can make sure you don't agree to an unfair settlement that would jeopardize your financial future. Far too many law firms are just “settlement mills” that only accept easy-to-win claims. If you hire one of these attorneys and an unexpected issue or dispute arises, they might not invest the extra effort to fight for the best possible outcome. We take a different approach at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers. Our attorneys devote the necessary time and resources to each case they handle. By preparing every claim for trial, we enter settlement negotiations with the strongest possible case, which reduces the likelihood of delays, disputes, and complications. Our relentless devotion to our clients has resulted in more than $300 million in settlements and trial verdicts.
We'll Make Sure the Insurance Company Treats You Fairly
Most Americans would fall behind on bills if they miss just a few paychecks. Even if you're fairly well-off, the cost of medical bills and lost income may still threaten your financial future. With so much at stake, it's easy for the stress to consume your life and tempting to accept the first settlement offer from the insurance company. Unfortunately, insurers are well aware that many claimants want to resolve the proceedings as soon as possible so they can alleviate their financial burden and move on with life. It is not uncommon for a personal injury victim to receive a low settlement offer shortly after the proceedings, but if you accept, you will not be able to pursue further compensation. The South San Francisco personal injury lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers are well-versed in the strategies used by insurance companies to protect their bottom line. We will help you stay one step ahead of the claims adjuster and ensure you are treated fairly throughout the proceedings. Here are just a few tactics the insurer might use to reduce the amount of compensation they have to pay out:
- Delaying the Proceedings: The longer it takes to resolve your claim, the more debt you are likely to accrue. Our attorneys will make sure the insurance company doesn't delay the claims process unnecessarily.
- Citing Pre-Existing Injuries: Even if you had a pre-existing injury, you may still be entitled to damages if the accident caused it to worsen. Proving as much can be challenging and may require the testimony of medical experts. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we work with a broad network of medical specialists in a variety of disciplines who can provide testimony.
- Misrepresenting Your Statements: One of the biggest mistakes you can make is providing a recorded statement to the insurance company. You never know how your statements might be misrepresented to dispute liability or the severity of your injuries. It is best to leave all correspondence to your accident attorney.
