My name is Steve Schwartzapfel. I represent people that have been injured. Where somebody else broke the rules, I seek to go ahead and hold that person accountable.
Insurance companies would like nothing more for you to just walk away. That is their goal. That’s their objective. They do everything they can so you would just become frustrated, overwhelmed, and walk away. They don’t want the wrongdoer to be held accountable. It encourages people to break the rules.
When somebody is injured, maimed, or disabled, and the wrongdoer isn’t held accountable, the taxpayer picks up the bill. Insurance companies train their people to go ahead and defend these cases right at the time an accident occurs. In fact, some insurance companies have a 24-hour rule that they try to go ahead and obtain the statement of the injured party within 24 hours. Certain insurance carriers, in fact, have cars with adjusters, waiting for a phone call, so that when an accident happens. They can get to the scene, they can take photographs, they can get to the hospital, and try to obtain the statement of the injured person before they spoke to a lawyer.
Studies show that when a person is represented by a lawyer, the insurance company has to pay, on average, three and a half times more amount of money. Even after going ahead and paying for attorneys fees, the injured person ends up with substantially more money.
