After an accident, the last thing you should be worried about is talking to the insurance company. However, sometimes they are in such a rush to get rid of the situation that they call you the next day or even go to the hospital while you are still there.
You should avoid any interaction with the insurance company yourself. Don’t give in to their pressure. Instead, contact at Kisling, Nestico & Redick’s team of car accident lawyers in Cincinnati, OH. Let us deal with them and get everything you are entitled to by law.
KNR is the right firm for you after a Cincinnati car wreck. We know how insurance companies operate, and we understand how they take advantage of victims like you.
When he was just 15, our founding partner Rob Nestico was injured in a car crash when another driver failed to stop at an intersection. He spent three months in the hospital recovering from his injuries. During that time, Rob and his family were taken advantage of by insurance companies. This experience instilled him with a passion for helping others who have been injured and need protection from unscrupulous companies that will do everything possible to get rid of a claim.
Yes. No matter what type of motor vehicle accident you have, you should always contact an attorney right away. Whether you are dealing with your own insurance company or that of the at-fault driver, you need someone to protect your rights.
Insurance companies are large corporations that are only interested in making money. They might make you think they want to help, but in reality, they want to get rid of your claim quickly and cheaply.
When you work with KNR, you have a team of attorneys on your side who won’t let the insurance companies take advantage of you. KNR has worked with thousands of car accident victims, and we know how to get you the maximum amount of compensation. With us, you will get the best outcome possible.
If the insurance company calls you, give them your attorney’s phone number. Once they know you have legal representation, they shouldn’t call you back. They are legally required to go through your lawyer. This ensures they don’t use anything you say against you.
If you receive a letter from an insurance company, take it to your attorney. Your attorney will want the information in the letter to call them and start a claim. If they make you a settlement offer, don’t take it! The first offer is typically much lower than you deserve. By working with a lawyer, you will get enough money to cover all of your losses.
Insurance companies often blame the victims when it comes to auto claims. They may try to place partial or full responsibility on you for the accident. This will allow them to pay as little as possible or deny the claim altogether.
If the insurance company tries to blame you, your attorney will do everything possible to prove the other driver is genuinely at fault. KNR knows how to conduct an independent investigation and collect the necessary evidence to show the other driver was negligent – or violated the law and drove irresponsibly. We will prove the insurance company wrong and get you compensation whenever possible.
After a car accident in Cincinnati, you shouldn’t have to deal with more stress than necessary. With our resources and record of success all across Ohio, KNR can take on any insurance company and protect your best interests.
