One thing we see are that insurance companies, or private companies who have been involved with an accident, or their insurers have been involved with an accident will reach out to one of our injured clients, sometimes before they’ve retained us, to offer them a resolution of whatever happened. They may offer them a settlement check that on its face looks like it may be sufficient for what happened to them. And what the insurance company is trying to do is get to this injured person before they can be adequately represented by a skilled attorney. And they’re trying to cut their losses when they know that they’re responsible for the accident, and they know they’re responsible for the injuries of this person. That’s why it’s so important for people who’ve been in an accident to contact a skilled lawyer like myself, like the other attorneys here at the Keefe law firm. To make sure that they’re not taken advantage of by an insurance company or a private company who wants to wash their hands of what they just did. Here at the Keefe law firm we stand for you.
