Why should you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer if you were injured in a car accident in Shepherdsville, Mount Washington or anywhere in Bullitt County or the Louisville area? The answer is actually straight forward: We are truly the only ones who are “on your side.”
You need to know a few things about personal injury insurance claims:
The insurance adjuster in your case has One Goal: Settle your case for the Least Amount Possible
The adjuster is a highly trained and skilled interrogator who can take your answer to the simple question of “how are you feeling” and use it against you down the road to substantially reduce the value of your legal and rightful personal injury claim.
This is why you need to work with John Schmidt and the Law Offices of John Schmidt & Associates PLLC if you are injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence. While the insurance representative or adjuster may seem very friendly and genuinely concerned (they are highly trained to be so), insurance adjusters are focused on one mission: resolve your case for the lowest possible amount. Period. They are highly trained and skilled in many different tactics they can use to convince you to take a much smaller amount than you rightfully deserve (or nothing) and protect profits for their insurance company.
It is not in your best interest to speak with any insurance representative before you speak with personal injury attorney John Schmidt and receive sound advice and counsel about the nature of your personal injury case and how to best protect your own rights and interests based upon more than two decades of experience and service to our communities here in Bullitt County and the Louisville area.
There are substantial changes going on in the insurance business. You’ve probably heard about insurers leaving this state or that state altogether. They can’t protect their own profit. Insurance adjusters are under tremendous pressure and are offering the lowest settlement amounts in many years. It isn’t just or fair. It’s business.
There are numerous auto accident cases here in Kentucky where the insurance company initially offered a few thousand or low 5 figures for cases which are actually settled or return a jury verdict for hundreds of thousands of dollars or more.
In cases involving trucks, ride share cars and other corporate vehicles personal injury settlements for many injuries are in the millions.
The difference between what injured parties achieve when they represent themselves when compared to when they are represented by an attorney is substantial. According to the IRS and the insurance industry itself those who have an attorney receive several times more than those who represent themselves.
You only get one opportunity to settle your personal injury claim, and if something comes up later you cannot go back for additional compensation. This is why you should hire an experienced personal injury lawyer from The Law Offices of John Schmidt & Associates PLLC if you are injured in a car accident due to someone else’s poor judgement or negligent actions.
You may also be surprised to learn that we don’t require any attorney’s fees up front in our personal injury cases. We represent personal injury clients based upon a “contingency fee” which means we are paid a percentage of the amount of money we are able to recover on your behalf.
