Unfortunately, dealing directly with the insurance company is extremely demanding and exhausting. It’s not designed to be a simple and easy process, but rather a complex and tedious process that requires skill, knowledge, patience, and persistence. The insurance company treats you differently if you’re unrepresented by an attorney and attempting to navigate the process on your own – they will attempt to minimize your claim and offer a low settlement to conclude your claim and escape paying a larger settlement. They do this by making the process difficult and overly complicated, requiring that you provide extensive documentation and records to prove your injury, and being stubborn and slow to respond. The fact is, they are hoping that you will simply go away.
This is precisely why it is so important and valuable to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to help you navigate the claims process. Once you sign up with us, we take over everything and we immediately send Letters Of Representation to the insurance carrier, letting them know that you’ve hired an attorney. With years of experience and a dedicated staff, we’re able to take over the logistical challenges and requirements of your claim and allow you to focus solely on recovering from your injury and taking care of your family.

against the insurance company to demand the most favorable outcome for our clients. We advocate for
our clients and aggressively pursue the highest dollar value for our client’s claim. We know what is
required to present the most favorable claim, so we focus on organization and thorough preparation to
present your claim. We collect all of the records and billing and do the extensive research to organize
the claim, paying special attention to insurance laws, statutes of limitations, and insurance policies, so
that our clients receive more than fair compensation.

Things to do immediately after injury:
- Call OlsenDaines’ Personal Injury Attorney!
- Line up any witnesses at the scene of the accident;
- Report all accidents to both the DMV and your insurance company;
- Seek medical treatments as soon as possible to establish a medical record and begin receiving health care for your injury;
- DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY WITHOUT CONSULTING AN ATTORNEY – you may be inadvertently settling your injury claim for a fraction of what it is actually worth!
- Treat your injury as long as possible (within the two year statute of limitations) to reach recovery;
- For Property Damage: make sure that the settlement value is adequate and fair. Keep in mind that insurance companies will always attempt to minimize the damage and pay you less than a fair amount. Do your homework and consult KellyBlueBook.com for the fair market value of your vehicle. Do not accept money for your property damage until you are 100% satisfied and have sought a second opinion of an attorney.
