DO CAR ACCIDENT VICTIMS GET MORE MONEY BY HIRING AN ATTORNEY?

The short answer proven by the insurance industry’s own research study is YES.

The results of a 1999 study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) itself found that the decision to hire an attorney pays significant dividends for car accident victims pursuing an auto insurance claim.  

The IRC found that insurance payouts are, on average, 3.5 times higher for clients who have hired an attorney than for those without one.

Furthermore, the table below shows the breakdown of the average insurance payout for specific injuries, both with and without an attorney’s representation.

Type of Injury

Without an Attorney

With an Attorney

Difference in Payout

Neck Sprain or Strain

$2,480

$7,918

$5,438

Bone Fracture

$19,105

$39,397

$20,292

Minor Laceration

$1,166

$4,771

$3,605

Average Injury

$3,262

$11,939

$8,677

    **Because this study was conducted in 1999, dollar figures in this table would likely be much higher today due to inflation rates.

Insurance companies are very aware of this study and train their adjusters to go to great efforts to convince people from hiring an attorney.  Remember, these adjusters are trained to maximize profits for their employer and NOT to be fair and reasonable in trying to settle your case. 

No matter how many millions of dollars they pay to try and have you believe it:

State Farm is NOT your “good neighbor,” you are NOT in “good hands” with Allstate, and Nationwide is NOT “on your side.”

No matter which law firm you choose, you need an experienced attorney with a proven track record on your side to take care of you and your family.
