You are having what you think is normal day, and then someone else’s negligence makes that normal day turn into one that may change your life forever. You are injured, may have lost your only form of transportation and on top of that you have to deal with several calls from the insurance companies.
You deserve help and you deserve the time to heal and not deal with everything else, especially not worrying about if your attorney has your best interests in mind.
We understand that the “easy” choice may be to hire the attorney you hear on the TV all the time. But those firms, are what insurance companies refer to as “Settlement Mills”. We have clients switch to us from those firms often, and the comments we hear include, “I have no idea what is going on in my case,” and “I only ever talked to a case manager, never the attorney.” These comments are unacceptable, and when we actually get the case files, we see how little was handled at all, with many cases losing case value everyday because the previous attorney did not give the advice they should have to help the client get all that they deserve. Here are 3 important reasons, you should reconsider hiring these types of law firms.
- Insurance Companies Love Settlement Mills: Insurance companies like Geico, Allstate and State Farm know that these law firms have thousands of cases, so each one doesn’t matter as much to them individually. They low ball those cases, and many times these huge law firms tell you that you got the best settlement you could get, when that is probably not the case. They took what they can get with minimal effort because they have hundreds of other cases right behind yours.
- You are Just a Case Number, Not a Client: Unless you have a multi-million dollar case, you aren’t a name to them you are a case number. Like we said, they have thousands of cases, so they don’t have the time to treat you like you should be treated, they want to settle the case as fast as possible, even if that means sacrificing money that you deserve to get, so they can make quick money and get you out of their caseload. You deserve to receive personal attention, because your accident IS a big deal.
- You Will Probably Not Get the Amount You Deserve: When you combine the facts that the insurance companies know that a settlement mill law firm will settle your case quickly and the fact that the firm has thousands of other cases they can make a quick buck off, your case’s value will just be based off what they have received in the past for similar cases, rather than the facts of your own case. The time and effort will not be put in to accurately evaluate your claim.
Settlement Mill Firms are really good at spending millions on heavy advertising and labeling themselves as “aggressive” or “fighters,” but in reality the only people they fight for is themselves, not their clients.
