Do I need a car crash lawyer?
After an auto crash, most people believe that the insurance company of the responsible party will simply repair their car, pay their medical bills, and get them back to where they were before the accident happened. After all, that’s what insurance is for right? Unfortunately, many insurance companies are more concerned about protecting their bottom line than they are with taking care of you and your family after an accident. They will attempt to pay you as little as possible, oftentimes much less than you deserve in the hope that you will just go away. Alternatively, they will make you play the waiting game by delaying, denying or defending your claim altogether. As many accident victims find out first hand, the less insurance companies pay out in claims, the more profitable they become. Don’t get frustrated by the games played by the insurance companies and make the call to Larrick Law Firm PC to find out your rights (512) 893-5700.
