The Law Office of Brian F. Reinhold, P.C. focuses on addressing the needs of the injured and the loss of those left behind by a wrongful death - whether that loss arises from an automobile accident, medical mistake, unsafe walkway or something else. Hopefully you will never need my firm's services but if you do, I am here to help. Injury victims need to learn their rights early. Being injured or suffering through the loss of a loved one's wrongful death is an emotionally taxing situation. Insurance companies will likely be pressing you for answers to questions that have legal ramifications without explaining to you what those ramifications may be. Representing yourself against in insurance company is often an unfair fight. Insurance adjusters are experts at twisting words, using delay tactics creating unnecessary hurdles to wear you down so you'll accept a settlement offer less than you deserve. Contacting the insurance company without first having discussed your case with an attorney can greatly reduce the compensation you may receive. Furthermore, you are limited in time as to how long you can wait after you are injured to bring a lawsuit. Failing to bring a lawsuit within that time means you are forever barred from obtaining compensation for your injuries and losses. Consulting with an attorney early in the process is an important step in educating yourself on your rights. If you need a lawyer, you should understand why, and what that will accomplish. However, many injury matters do not need the expertise of an attorney. During my free initial consultation, I regularly advise clients to refrain from hiring an attorney and instead provide them with a suggested course of action to seek compensation for their injuries.
