If you’ve been injured in a Long Island car accident, you know insurance companies will try to get a statement from you so they can close the case. They might tell you that you don’t need an attorney; that they will “take care of you.”
But insurance companies work for their own interests—to wait as long as possible and to pay out as little as they can. That is why it is so important to have an experienced lawyer who understands the games that insurance companies play and will build your case to ensure you get the maximum amount you deserve.
Insurance companies usually don’t play games when they know you have an experienced lawyer. But you don’t, here are some of the tactics you can expect them to use:

Too often, people settle for much less than they really need to cover their medical costs, future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages that have resulted from the accident.
