Get Honest Advice Before You Sign Anything. It Can Save You Thousands.

Don’t sign insurance papers right away and, when you do, know what you are signing. One wrong decision costs one person $100,000! I won’t reveal his name, but this mistake was catastrophic, particularly since he was seriously injured. He had a clear liability case. His family repeatedly said that maybe he needed to hire a lawyer, but he put it off thinking, “I have a lot of knowledge.” “I can get it all done and save money.” “It would be too hard to find the right lawyer.” These excuses were enough to keep him from making the right call. Eventually, after enough cajoling, he acted. He called me only to discover it was too late. He had signed a release without giving proper notice to his own insurance company. He discovered, to his horror, that the under-insurance company was off the hook for thousands of dollars, he had lost One Hundred Thousand Dollars!

Insurance forms will fill up your mailbox after a car accident like political postcards during the primary season. Should you sign these forms? The answer is no, at least, not at first. Never sign something you don’t understand. We can give you some general background information that will help you figure this out. Before you sign any documents, authorizations, releases, or contracts, it would be smart to discover if this is the kind of case you should handle on your own without a lawyer. Certain types of minimal injury or property damage claims you can handle on your own and will probably get to the same place with or without a lawyer. I will not take your case unless I believe I can add value over and above what you can get on your own. There are certain cases with serious injuries you can handle on your own because if there is limited insurance and no chance to recover a judgement you will end up in the same place. However, for other matters that are more complicated involving proof of liability, future damages, uninsured or under-insured issues, policy limits, or when the insurance company makes a low-ball offer, you will probably need an attorney. Sometimes cases fall somewhere in the middle, and folks will hire a lawyer because they know it’s just a hassle to deal with all the red tape themselves.

In valuing your personal injury claim, the insurance company wants to get the case settled right away. Sometimes they make offers within days of the accident. You don’t want to settle it at that point. You want to make sure you know full nature and extent of your injuries and once you have a full understanding of what your injuries are, then you’re going to be able to follow the formulas that we’re talking about here to come up with a good, proper, reasonable and just value for your claim.

We’re going to give you the answers. We’re going to tell you how to lower your stress, calculate a value of a case. And if you need some help, you can feel free to contact us because I know it’s very confusing. You’re hurt. You’re in the accident. You’re worried about blowing your life savings. You have all these bills coming in, all these people calling you. It gets very, very confusing, particularly when they treat you like a criminal, as opposed to someone who’s been injured in the accident.

Let’s take a look at our background. We’ve been practicing law since 1977. We have a well-respected firm and we have very many satisfied clients. Most of our cases come from prior satisfied clients who have been through the process with us and understand that what we’re about is adding value to your case.

We don’t even take the case if we don’t think we can add value to your case. And in cases we don’t take, you can get our free book on how to handle a case yourself if that is your desire. But when we take a look at personal injury claims, there’s basic elements that you have to include in your claim to come up with the value.

We encourage you to go to kansasaccidentbook.com and get our free book entitled Every Person’s Guide To Saving Thousands Of Dollars In Your Auto Accident Claim. Many people have read that and found to be extremely helpful, particularly if you’re just new to this process and trying to get some background as to how to handle your case.
