Why You Need A Vancouver, Washington Injury Attorney
Insurance companies make money by collecting premiums and paying out as little as possible on valid claims. The insurer of the person who seriously injured you wants to settle your claim as soon as possible and as quickly as possible. That saves the insurance company money. Personal injury law is highly complex. You don’t know how to properly put a medical bill or report into evidence, and you don’t know the highly technical differences between direct and cross-examination either. By not retaining a qualified personal injury lawyer right after an accident, you’ll likely be giving up rights that you never even knew that you had. A judge won’t give those rights back to you either.
