A lot of people have never been in an accident (thankfully!). If that used to describe you but you’ve now been injured in an accident because of someone else’s negligence, you may be wondering what you’re supposed to do, who to talk to (and who NOT to talk to), and where to go to get the help you need. Choosing an experienced personal injury attorney like Eric Jeide at High Country Law is incredibly important. Here’s three ways Eric can help you:
1. Navigate the Entire Process from Claims to Trial (if needed)
High Country Law knows how the insurance company thinks! Eric used to work for the largest car insurance company in Arizona. While in its employ, Eric saw first-hand how cases are evaluated from a defense perspective; discussed defense strategies/perspective with insurance adjusters and highly experienced insurance defense attorneys; arbitrated and mediated dozens of cases; and tried cases in front of judges and jurors (ultimately receiving defense verdicts for his clients).
Why does any of this matter? Eric uses his experience working for the insurance company to ensure his clients who have experienced a personal injury as the result of someone else’s negligence are treated fairly. It’s like having a football coach who knows the other team’s playbook. Eric can advise you on the best course of action for your specific case all along the way – from property damage and filing a claim, to arbitration/mediation or trial, if necessary.
2. Negotiate Effectively on YOUR Behalf
The adage, “You get more flies with honey than with vinegar” is true in life and negotiation with insurance adjusters alike. Despite what some attorneys will tell you, insurance adjusters are people who are- for the most part- just doing their job. Typically, if an adjuster is treated with respect and dignity, they will reconsider an argument they previously decided against you or even ask their manager to try and get you more money! On the other hand, when you want the benefit of the doubt in your case, but your attorney has been “less-than-respectful” during negotiation, don’t expect the adjuster to do you any favors. This doesn’t mean your attorney shouldn’t be firm and adamantly demand that you be treated fairly – or else! You simply need an attorney who knows how and when to negotiate with each style.
3. Personalized Treatment for YOUR Injury
Your injury is, well—personal. That’s how you should be treated from day one. Eric truly cares about people and wants the best for those who have been wrongly treated or injured. This caring approach is apparent in the way Eric communicates with injury victims and everyone else involved in getting you the best treatment, recovery, and settlement possible.
