A Need for Car Accident Advocates
Many lawyers and law firms advertise themselves as “car accident lawyers.” Many firms, however, do not have the experience, reputation, and resources to truly maximize the value of your car accident case. Moreover, many firms handle hundreds if not thousands of car accident cases at any one time, which effectively prevents them from devoting the time and resources that should be dedicated to your specific car accident case.
Some of these firms have dozens of non-lawyers handling the day-to-day aspect of car accident cases. Other firms have quotas about how many cases each one of their paralegals or lawyers must settle each month. These practices incentivize firms to accept less than full value settlements. Unfortunately, most of their clients do not know any better.
Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader understands your case is your only case. When we agree to represent a client in a car accident case, we agree to devote the time, resources, and expertise necessary to get the best possible result. We do not warehouse hundreds or thousands of car accident cases. Experienced lawyers will handle your case.
To effectively represent the victim of a personal injury from a car accident, a law firm must also have intimate knowledge about how insurance coverage works. Often, law firms unskilled in this area miss sources of insurance that can increase the value of a car accident case or take an insurance company’s word that a policy may not apply or provide coverage for the loss. There may be multiple policies that provide coverage for any one accident. Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader has lawyers specializing in insurance coverage issues who can identify all of the potential sources of insurance coverage and effectively deal with insurance companies who act in bad faith by trying to deny coverage for car accident claims, including hiding other policies that may apply.
Moreover, many people who have car accident cases do not realize that their own insurance policy may provide benefits even if they are not the party at fault. Examples include personal injury protection (“PIP”), med pay coverage, or underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage. These benefits are additional sources of coverage that may be available to help you maximize the value of your case.
