Should I get a lawyer after a car accident at a known dangerous intersection?
There is absolutely no question you should get a lawyer if you are involved in an accident at W BROADWAY & S 26TH ST. The insurance companies are working against you from day one. This includes your own insurance company. Adjusters will pretend they are helping you only to garner information they will later use against you. Insurance companies are smart. They know civilians don’t have the wherewithal to take them to court. Lawyers that practice in the courthouse do this day in and day out. My advice to anyone involved in a car crash at W BROADWAY & S 26TH ST is to get a lawyer and not to speak to the insurance company without a lawyer. I’d rather see a potential client of mine go to my biggest competitor than try to deal with the insurance companies on their own.
