My insurance company is handling everything. Why do I need a lawyer?

Your insurance company has its own lawyers to provide it with good legal advice about its rights and responsibilities. You need the same legal advice for yourself. In our experience, insurers can often be helpful at the beginning of a case, but are not looking out for your best interests. In the long run, they are seeking to limit payments to you. As well, insurance companies are not permitted to provide you with legal advice about your right to sue. Therefore, if you have been in a car crash and wish to consider a lawsuit, you need independent advice about your rights. Given that strict time limits apply in some cases, you should not delay in getting legal advice. The scene of the crash may also be important to your case, and early attendance by a photographer, engineer or investigator may be needed to preserve your right to claim. At MD Lawyers, we can help you evaluate your options if you have been injured in a car crash.
