Why Have an Auto Accident Attorney Deal with the Insurance Companies?
Sadly, insurance companies hire individuals experienced in lowering the claims brought to them. A qualified lawyer will battle the insurance company for you when they raise common arguments and defenses in an attempt to shift blame on you for the accident. They may blame a prior medical condition, claim you are at fault for part of the crash, and may even try to drag the case out past the statute of limitation or window of opportunity to prosecute. A Seattle attorney knows both the Washington state and federal laws when you don’t to defend your case.
