How can a lawyer help with an auto accident claim?

First, having a lawyer on your side levels the playing field.  The person who caused the accident is required to immediately turn the case over to his or her insurance company.  The insurance company uses adjusters and lawyers who are specifically trained to deny or reduce your claim.  This may include denying compensation to family members who are entitled to receive benefits for loss of companionship.

Christine, I often think about what you would've been doing today. I think about your daughter, and how much of how little she may remember you. I think that this was a life taken so young with so much promise. I'm still crushed from it. I wish you were here. Love you, Bossy
