Dealing With The Insurance Company

If you've been injured in an accident, you need to focus on what matters most: your health. You should not have to deal with the insurance company. At the Law Firm of Michael H. Bereston, Inc., we take care of all the legal details of your case so you can focus on your recovery.

We are your advocates. We are your legal counselors. We are here to help.

What To Expect After An Accident

After an accident, you can expect to speak to a claims adjuster. He or she will go through information very quickly — typically on the phone — asking you many questions and recording all of your answers. After gathering information from you, he or she may make a determination regarding fault and make you a settlement offer.

For most people, being involved in an accident is a very rare event and this process can seem overwhelming. After the initial conversation with a claims adjuster, it is not uncommon for accident victims to feel as if they don't know what is happening, or fully understand their rights.

Attorney Michael H. Bereston has more than 20 years of experience in injury law. He will sit down with you, review the facts surrounding your accident and explain your legal rights to you. If you have questions about the process, he will provide answers. When you leave our office, you will leave knowing that you have an experienced legal advocate on your side.

Speak With A Lawyer Before Speaking To Insurance Companies

It is important to remember, insurance companies are in business to make a profit. The less money they pay out after an accident, the higher that profit.

Insurance companies — even your own company — are not on your side. Giving a recorded statement or an accounting of the events surrounding your accident could jeopardize your ability to recover compensation for your medical bills or lost wages. Talk to an attorney before speaking to the insurance company, and do not sign any settlement without a lawyer.
