Should I negotiate with the insurance adjuster myself without the help of an attorney in order to settle my Florida auto accident case?

We almost always recommend that our clients do not try to negotiate their cases themselves. We recommend almost always going to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to help them.

The truth is there are too many pitfalls and too many errors that could made on behalf of a non-attorney client trying to do something themselves when it comes to their case. There could be liens on the case that the client is unaware of that haven't been triggered until they resolve the case. There could be language in a release that an insurance company wants this person to sign that could harm them later down the road, and, finally, they may not be at maximum medical improvement, so they may not know everything that's wrong with them, and then they settle the case and they can never ask for money again.

There are too many risks involved. We recommend hiring an attorney, getting them involved on a contingency fee basis, which involves no upfront money, and let them help you.

What Our Clients Say
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.
After my accident, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
