When is Getting Help From an Experienced Lawyer a Good Idea?

Dealing with an insurance adjuster is a whole different ball game when you have been seriously injured in a car accident that was caused by the other driver. In these types of cases, the insurance adjusters are likely to try to implement tactics to dispute or deny liability or the extent of your injuries.

Do not agree to sign any documents or to give a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster. If you are sent a medical release form by the insurance company, don't sign it. If you are sent a settlement offer, don't sign it until you have had it reviewed by a lawyer. If an adjuster asks you to give him or her a recorded statement, don't agree to do so. Simply tell the adjuster that you want to talk to a personal injury lawyer before you will sign anything or will give a statement.

Your car accident lawyer can take over your claim and handle the negotiations with the adjuster and with the insurance company for you. Experienced car accident lawyers understand how to properly value accident claims and can determine a range of reasonable amounts that you might expect to receive. They can then use the figures that they calculate to evaluate any settlement offer that is made to you. If the offer is unreasonably low, the attorney can negotiate on your behalf to secure a reasonable and fair settlement that compensates you for your losses.

If the insurance company denies your claim, getting help from an experienced lawyer is crucial. An attorney can evaluate what happened and give an honest assessment about the validity of your claim. If the lawyer agrees to accept your case, he or she can file a lawsuit on your behalf in the event that the insurance company is disputing or denying liability.

Client Reviews
I have known Steven for some time now and when his services were required he jumped in and took control of my cases. I had two and they were handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. He went the extra mile regardless of the bumps in the road. I can not see me using any other attorney and I would recommend him to any of my family and friends. Josie A.
Steven was vital during our most trying time. He was referred by a friend after an accident that involved a family member. While he was critical and lying in the hospital, Steven was kind, patient and knowledgeable about what we were going through. Following our loss, Steven became a tough and aggressive negotiator and made sure that we receive a huge compensation. I would refer Steven in fact, this happened 2 years ago and I still speak highly of his service. Cheryl S.
Mr. Sweat is a pitbull in the courtroom as well as settlement negotiations - You can't have a better equipped attorney in your corner! It is a pleasure working as colleagues together on numerous cases. He can get the job done. Jonathan K.

He stood up for me and helped me get through the process. I would definitely recommend. I couldn't think of any better lawyer than him. MiraJane C.
I must tell anyone, if you need a great attorney, Steve sweat is the guy! I had an awful car accident and had no idea where to turn. He had so much to deal with because my accident was a 4 car pile up. Not to mention all the other cars were behind me and they were not wanting to settle in any way! He never stopped working for me and had my best interest at heart! Audra W.
I believe I made the best choice with Steven M Sweat, Personal Injury. I was very reluctant to go forward with my personal injury claim. I had a valid claim and I needed a professional attorney to handle it. I felt so much better when I let Steven take my case. His team did everything right and I am very satisfied. Stia P.
I have to say that Steve has been exemplary! I met Steve at a point with my case that I was ready to give up. He took the time and dealt with all of my concerns. Most importantly, he was present and listened to what I was going through. He was able to turn things around, put me and my case on the right track! The results were better that expected! Highly recommend!! Cody A.
