FAQ: If I’m Not the Suing Type, Why Should I Still Hire an Attorney?

A vast majority of drivers would never choose to be involved in a vehicle accident as they can be traumatic, time-consuming, life-altering, and expensive.

For those drivers who do find themselves the victim of a vehicle accident, a vast majority would rather not hire an attorney and want to trust that their insurance company will compensate them fairly for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages they’ve suffered.

The reality is, though, that victims of a vehicle accident often can’t trust that their insurance company will offer a fair or timely settlement. In fact, as Mann Wyatt Tanksley Injury Attorneys’s founder Scott Mann points out, insurance companies will often deny a claim and offer no settlement.

“We have people contact our office every day that have been told by the at-fault insurance company that their claim is being denied after a thorough investigation,” Mann said. “Many times when they hire us we’re able to recover the maximum amount of money available.”

Jesse Tanksley, personal injury attorney and partner here at Mann Wyatt Tanksley Injury Attorneys, says our attorneys level the playing field by aggressively defending our clients’ rights to a fair and timely settlement that adequately covers all related medical expenses, lost wages, and damages from loss of quality of life.

“Our goal is to make sure that you do get the full compensation and you do get treated fairly and you don’t settle your case for less than it’s worth and less than what you should receive considering what you’ve been through,” Tanksley said.

Deciding to hire an attorney does not mean you have decided to file a lawsuit, Tanksley said. In about 90% of cases, our experienced attorneys are able to get the insurance company to agree to a fair settlement. If the insurance company is not willing to make an adequate offer, then a lawsuit could be filed, but only with the client’s consent.

“We will give the client recommendations as to what they can do in the case,” said Mann Wyatt Tanksley Injury Attorneys personal injury attorney and partner Mike Wyatt, “and it will always be their decision about whether they actually file a lawsuit.”
