Being injured in a car accident, truck accident, or other accident involving negligence can through your world upside down. It can result in calls by collection agents who represent doctors and hospitals. It can result in piles of paperwork requested by an insurance claims adjuster and phones calls demanding recorded statements and signed medical record release authorizations. As a
St. Louis personal injury lawyer and victim of a serious car accident myself, I have personal experience with this horrible process. This is what my law firm was formed...to be a voice on behalf of injured persons throughout Missouri, Illinois, and Arkansas. We stand up to insurance companies and seek maximum compensation for accidents that result in
personal injury or fatalities.
Seeking justice after an accident is not easy. Insurance companies are well-funded. They make billions and billions of dollars in profits each year. The don't make all of that money by paying fairly on personal injury claims. The fact is that most people who are injured, without a lawyer, will accept just about any settlement offer from the insurance company. If you want to obtain a fair settlement from a claims adjuster, you will need the assistance of an experienced Missouri injury attorney. And not all injury lawyers are created equal. The attorneys at Schultz Legal Group law firm
only handle serious injury and death claims. This is important because lawyers who practice in several areas of law rarely do a good job in any of them.
So what should you do if you have the unfortunate experience of being injured because of someone else's carelessness or recklessness? First, seeking professional medical care as soon as possible. Second, contact a Saint Louis accident injury lawyer by calling toll-free (866) 840-3636. If you have an interest in being successful in the outcome of your
personal injury claim, do not speak with any claims representative before you first seek a free consultation from an attorney. Just like in criminal law where "anything you say can be used against you in a court of law", the same holds through in the civil justice system. If you make written or oral statements to an insurance company, those statements can be used against you to minimize or deny your claim and reduce your chances at a fair settlement.
You have one chances at winning your case. There are no 'do-overs' in the civil justice system. If you are injured, make your one shot count by hiring a qualified personal injury attorney.
