If you have been injured in an accident, you may want to speak with a personal injury lawyer before accepting an offer from insurance. Insurance companies are, after all, for-profit corporations with boards of directors and stockholders who demand profit.
Profit for insurance companies often comes at the expense of the injured. In other words: insurance companies are concerned more about their bottom line than your health and recovery. A personal injury attorney, on the other hand, will be squarely focused on you.
