Personal Injury cases in Mississippi are settled everyday with no lawyer involvement between an injured party and their assigned insurance adjuster. We see people quickly signing the insurance adjuster’s paperwork every day instead of getting free legal advice first before accepting a quick offer.
Some clients may be thinking that an Injury lawyer will take most of the money, or probably can’t get more for you after fees. Some clients don’t want to have to go to court, or have anxiety and are too nervous, or just don’t have time to be messing with Injury lawyers and the court system. Some clients think the insurance adjuster is so nice and honest and told you everything you need to know or they are only entitled to what the adjuster says you are entitled to.
All of these are largely myths. A good Injury lawyer can advise you in a very short period of time whether an offer from an insurance company is fair or whether more investigation might be needed. The insurance adjuster is paid to help the insurance company, not you. They are not on your side and they are not going to give you the honest advice about your rights that you need. A good Injury lawyer will not take most of the money and will only get that percentage that is fair considering the risk involved. Dealing with a good Injury lawyer is not that bad. In fact, it can and should be quite painless. Most of the time a good Injury lawyer can get a settlement that is in your best interests, without you ever having to go to court.
