Do I need an attorney for my Florida auto accident case if the insurance company seems to be cooperating? | Ortiz Law Firm | Nick Ortiz | https://www.nickortizlaw.com/ | (850) 308-7833 | 823 East Jackson Street, Pensacola, Florida 32501
I always tell claimants that you do not need an attorney in every single type of case but what I really want you to pay attention to is why do they seem to be cooperating. For example, they may be asking for you to sign a medical release and they are saying that they need the medical release so that they can update your medical records and understand your injuries so they can pay you all the benefits you’re entitled to. However, what they might be really doing is trying to get old medical records that they could use against you by saying that your injuries were preexisting. Because you may not be aware that they are doing this, it is recommended that you may contact an attorney to understand your rights and what they may be doing so that you fully understand what benefits you’re entitled to.
