  • Using an attorney
  • Find a good one: • Above all else, if you want to fight the insurance company and try to get the best settlement, you should hire a lawyer.
  • Find a good one: • With an attorney you will have someone on your side throughout the entire process.

  • Find a good one: • When looking for the attorney, make sure you ask around for referrals and try your best to find a quality lawyer - a hardworking one will help you get the best results.
  • Expect more money: • Provided you find a quality and hardworking attorney, you should get a bigger settlement.
  • Expect more money: • Of course, you will have to pay legal fees and taxes.

  • If you want to settle with the insurance company, you can get some money, hopefully enough to cover your medical bills.
  • On the other hand, if you want to go for a larger personal injury settlement, you must contact a lawyer who is willing to take the insurance company to court.
  • If you've been seriously injured through the incompetence or carelessness of another, contact the Millea Law Firm in Scottsdale Arizona.
