Why insurers want to settle quickly
Insurance companies have one primary goal: To maintain a healthy bottom line. This is generally accomplished by collecting the premiums their clients pay and trying to pay out as little as possible in claims. This goes for claims filed by accident victims too. Insurance companies will try to settle quickly in hopes that you will not contact a personal injury attorney to attempt to collect larger sums of money.
Why call an attorney?
You have rights to certain compensation after an automobile accident. Some of the compensation includes hospitalization costs, rehabilitation costs and loss of wages. In addition, those who have lost a loved one in an accident due to someone's negligence may also have a wrongful death claim. Most victims and their families do not have a clear understanding of the laws in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as they apply to personal injury cases.
Keep in mind, insurance companies are hoping you will not contact an attorney. For them, this means they save on the settlement as well as save money by not having their attorney litigate the case against them. When you hire an attorney, you not only get an advocate who will fight to protect your rights, but someone who will fight to get you a full and fair settlement.
