Why Choose Hach & Rose, LLP to Represent You?
After an accident, it can be challenging to choose the right attorney. Oftentimes, your life has been turned upside down, and you may also be dealing with extensive physical injuries. Like other professionals, attorneys have varying levels of experience, ability, and success.
Your selection has an impact on the outcome of your case. After an accident, the at-fault party’s insurance company may send an insurance adjuster to talk to you within days. They may try to convince you that you can handle negotiating with the insurance company on your own.
Insurance adjusters sometimes represent themselves as friends of the victim. However, you should know that these professionals are skilled negotiators whose goal is to represent the financial interest of the insurance company and not you.
When the insurance company knows you have limited resources and knowledge of the law, they may deliberately delay settling your claim. They may also offer you an early settlement that is much lower than one they would make if you were represented by an experienced attorney.
The attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP are experienced negotiators and skilled litigators. We can negotiate with the insurance company to avoid litigation. However, if this is unsuccessful, we are also prepared to fight your case in court. Take the first step and contact us to discuss your case.
