Get a Lawyer
You’ve been in an accident and you’re wondering if you need to seek the help of an attorney. TV ads insist that you need their help to protect your rights; yet, your insurance company has assured you that it is looking out for your best interests. Should you seek legal advice?
Absolutely! As soon as possible after an accident, you should consult an attorney. You may not know the laws that are in place to protect you, or worse, the insurance company may not willingly inform you of all of your rights.
When you contact Lilly, O’Toole & Brown, we’ll talk with you and make sure you know how the law can help.
Don’t act alone
We can advise you on whether you even have a case, who’s at fault, and what actions can be taken. Remember: the law limits the time you have to file your case, so obtain legal advice as soon as possible.
We are different
Not only does Lilly, O’Toole & Brown have the experience, skills and resources to take on your case but we are committed to putting your needs above all other considerations and to always argue aggressively for your rights.
At Lilly, O’Toole, & Brown, we share one conviction that your right to full compensation is the single most important aspect of practicing law.
Why Hire a Lawyer?
When you or someone you love has suffered an injury as the result of someone else’s actions, it may seem natural that the person would offer to compensate you, or that their insurance company will do the right thing and offer a fair settlement. Unfortunately, that rarely happens.
Many times, people do not take responsibility for their actions and insurance companies profit from under-compensating injury victims. Insurance companies and their lawyers also know the governing law backwards and forwards, and they know that most non-lawyers have no idea what legal rights and remedies they possess.
While it may seem possible to negotiate your claim yourself, insurance companies will typically do everything they can to take advantage of you and to get you to accept the lowest possible settlement, while attempting to elicit statements from you that will damage your position if you ultimately decide to sue.
Can’t afford legal help?
You may feel as though you can’t afford legal help but it could be more costly if you try to go it alone. Talk to us. We can determine whether you even have a case, who’s at fault, and what actions can be taken. Remember: the law limits the time you have to file your case, so obtain legal advice as soon as possible.
Don’t let insurance companies pressure you into settling. You may be offered a sum of money that seems reasonable but we may be able to identify other areas for which you should receive compensation.
If you or someone you love has been hurt, please do not hesitate to contact Lilly, O’Toole & Brown. We are here for you. Call any of our attorneys for your free consultation today.
