Research Studies Show Car Accident Victims That Hire an Attorney Get Larger Settlements

The results of a study from the Insurance Research Council (IRC) show that the decision to hire an attorney pays significant compensation for accident victims pursuing an auto insurance claim due to injury. According to the Consumer Panel Survey of Auto Accident Victims, "Paying for Auto Injuries," settlements for injury victims were 40 percent higher with attorney representation than without it. As a result, there’s a dramatic increase in the number of people who hire an attorney to handle their insurance claims.
