Why You Need an Attorney Following a Car Accident in Ft. Lauderdale

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

There are a number of reasons you need an attorney following a car accident, but all of them boil down to this: Without an attorney, you will never be granted the full compensation you need to recover from your injuries.

How Insurance Works

When you are involved in a car accident, insurance companies begin working immediately to minimize your settlement. They do this because they are devoted to protecting their record-breaking profits. If you accept an insurance company settlement, you waive your right to seek legitimate compensation. Knowing this, insurance companies have developed a number of tricks and strategies to get victims to sign away their rights in exchange for what may seem like a good deal. The deals offered by insurance are never good. They are intended to cheat you out of your fair due, not help you recover.
