One day you are minding your own business, living your life, and in a heartbeat, a drunk, a texting teenager, a reckless driver, or just someone not paying attention, comes into your lane and changes your day, your year, and sometimes your life....with no warning. If you are like most people this has never happened to you before.
All of a sudden:
You are being contacted by insurance companies.
You are being asked to sign medical releases.
You are being asked to give a recorded statement.
You are being asked to take a quick settlement.
You can’t work.
Your bills are adding up.
Creditors are calling.
You need more medical treatment.
You can’t afford the treatment you need.
Adjusters are smiling and being friendly and companies are telling you that you can trust them because they are “good hands people”, “a good neighbor”, or “on your side."
Your friends and family are warning you to be careful.
You see lawyers on billboards, on TV, in the Yellow pages and all over the phone book who say they:
Are Personal Injury Lawyers,
Really care for you,
Are aggressive, and
Will see you without a fee;
You need information quickly so you won’t make a mistake.
You don’t know who to trust and you don’t want to receive a sales pitch from a fast talking lawyer.
I wrote this book for you to have good information in your hands prior to talking to an insurance adjuster, prior to making a mistake, and prior to hiring an attorney.
