Why hire an attorney, when I can do this myself?

Handling a car accident claim might be more difficult than you think.

Being injured in an automobile accident is no small event. Most people don't know what to do when involved in a car accident. The injuries you might suffer as a result of an auto accident range from whiplash to traumatic brain injury, and every type of injury in-between.  After you have been injured you are scared, and looking for answers. Often times the car accident insurance process will begin with an insurance adjuster calling you immediately.  The insurance adjuster may even work for the same insurance company that you have used for years.  The first thing you must understand is that the insurance company is not on your side.

Generally, the first thing the accident insurance companies will do is ask you to sign several documents.  They will tell you that you "must sign these documents to get the car accident insurance process started."  Seek the advice of an attorney before you sign any insurance documents.  You should never seek car accident insurance claims advice from an insurance adjuster.  An insurance adjuster works for a company that is trying to save money on your auto accident claim.

Car accident injury claims are generally made against insurance companies, not people.  Insurance companies seek to pay as little as possible on a car accident injury claim.  This means the insurance company will seek to minimize your car accident settlement to save the insurance company money.

In order to secure the entire sum that you are entitled to, experience is required. Nessler & Associates has over 35 years of experience in handling car accident lawsuits.  Do not let the liability insurance companies persuade you into taking an immediate settlement.  Nessler & Associates will deal with the insurance companies so that you are able to take the time necessary to recover from your injuries.  

The last thing you should have to worry about is whether an insurance company is treating you fairly.  Instead, you should worry about getting the medical attention you need in order to get better.  We are experienced in recovering monetary damages for our clients and have proven results.  We have a reputation for returning phone calls immediately and keeping an open line of communication with our clients.
