You may have suffered injuries from an auto collision, and not sure where to turn for help or what to do next. Maybe even thinking there is nothing to be done. This is a mistake many people make. However, a Truckee auto accident attorney can help guide you through your claim and recover your expenses due to you.
Additionally, many people make the mistake that the insurance company will work on their behalf. However, in reality the insurance company will be working on the insurance company's behalf. So it is important to take the first step and secure the services of a Truckee auto accident attorney so that the insurance company does not take advantage of you. It is in your best interest to obtain the highest settlement due to you, and most people do not have the negotiation skills, legal knowledge and time to deal with insurance companies. Insurance adjusters are trained to negotiate settlements for less than what the claim is worth. That is how the insurance company makes money. Unfortunately, it is a important that you must retain an attorney if you want full compensation. An Insurance Resource Council study (2004) found that people who retained an attorney received up to three times more compared to those who did not.
