So you have been injured in a car accident. What should you do. The lawyers are telling you to hire them. The insurance company is telling you not to hire a lawyer it's not necessary. Who do you believe? For the fourth quarter 2009 Allstate made $518,000,000.00. I don't think they are hurting. You can also go to their site www.allstate.com and dig out documents that reveal they had a consistent plan to keep car accident injury claimants from attorneys.

There are some web sites that tout books variously titled How To Settle Your Own Personal Injury Claim Yourself. You can pay up to $100 dollars for some of these books. I wanted to see if they were selling snake oil to the consuming public. Yes and No is the answer. The book I reviewed is by an lawyer. It does give some educational material about the claims process. So its not ALL snake oil. But their guarantee says it all. (Snake Oil) The say you will save as much or more as the price you pay for the book.
Personal injury victims do not give big insurance all of your medical records. When you bring a claim for bodily injury the insurance company will want you to sign a release to get your medical records. All of your medical records whether related to your claim or not. They are fishing for evidence against you and will not stop at records they are allowed to get. Your medical records are privileged and are protected by statute in Ohio. The only records the insurance company are entitled to are those related historically or causally to the instant injuries.
