Personal Injury FAQ
Los Angeles Injury Cases
Should I just accept a settlement the insurance company offered?
In many cases, the offer is far lower than you could expect to receive if an attorney from Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation is managing your claim. Insurance companies answer to their boards and to their shareholders; reducing costs and increasing profits is the general motive in any such enterprise.
They are providing compensation on behalf of their client - the liable party. Your rights are not protected if you deal with them directly, and you may accept an offer that is too low, considering the damages in the case.

Why do I need a lawyer?
