Why you should not talk to an insurance company: Quite simply, the insurance company is not your friend. Their only goal is to minimize the amount of money that they pay you. They don’t care whether you get fair compensation. What you need to do instead is call a lawyer. We care about you and we want to make sure that you’re compensated fairly. We’re able to put your case together. We’re able to present your case to the insurance company. We’re able to fight for you and we’re on your side. The insurance company is not your friend. They’re not on your side. You need someone who is.
