This Week On LawCall™ — Fighting The Insurance Company

Life is full of hazards – from a wreck on the interstate to a fire at your home. That’s why we have insurance. But, what if the insurance company lets you down when you need them the most? If this is happening to you, you need to tune in to LawCall™ this Sunday, when Tallahassee personal injury attorney Harry Graham will be explaining what to do if you feel your insurer isn’t playing fair.

Did the insurance company offer to write you a check and settle things quickly? What if your claim has been delayed or denied as your bills are piling up? You don’t have to go through this alone. If you’re tired of fighting the insurance company, you don’t have to go through this alone. Give us a call this Sunday on LawCall™ to learn what your next steps should be.

Why do I need a personal injury lawyer?

The customer service representative at your insurance company isn’t making the decisions about your claim; his bosses are. And, if you decide to fight their decision, you’re not going up against the nice lady on the phone; you’re going up against the insurance company’s cadre of experienced, well-paid attorneys. You need an advocate who can take on the insurance company- and their attorneys- and fight for you.

Personal injury lawyers represent clients who have been injured, or whose loved ones have been killed, or who have suffered a property loss, because of someone else’s actions- or their failure to act. These include injuries or a wrongful death from auto accidents, truck accidents, DUI accidents, birth injuries, slip and fall, dangerous and defective products, and medical malpractice. A Tallahassee personal injury lawyer is a plaintiff’s lawyer; she does not defend the person or company that caused the injury or wrongful death.

You need a personal injury attorney so you can level the playing field. You need a personal injury attorney who knows the law, is experienced and has the resources to take on the big insurance companies.

How do I find a personal injury attorney in Tallahassee?

At Fasig & Brooks, we get many new clients from recommendations from previous clients, so a good place to start is by asking your friends if they have any recommendations. You can also look for community recognition awards, like Best of Tallahassee and the Tally Awards. (Fasig & Brooks won both last year.) Once you have narrowed down your choices, you should ask these five questions before hiring any personal injury attorney.

Do I really need an attorney? Will it really make a difference?

No attorney can promise victory. We can’t guarantee how much you will get in a settlement- or if you’ll get a settlement at all. But without the resources of an experienced personal injury attorney, you’re going up alone against a big insurance company—who have many resources of their own.

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

The personal injury lawyers at Tallahassee Law Firm Fasig & Brooks work on a contingency fee basis. Our fees will be a percentage of any damages you are awarded. If you don’t win, we don’t get paid.
