Proven Recoveries On Insurance And Underinsurance
Experience has taught the attorneys at Rue Law Firm that insurers rarely volunteer settlements that fully cover all of the damages and injuries people sustain in car accidents. Through evidence gathering and tough litigation, they can work to persuade insurers who lowball their clients’ claims, or refuse to pay them at all, to provide the correct amount in a settlement. Otherwise, they go to trial to convince a jury that your claims justify an award. They also help clients recover on uninsured/underinsured motorist claims.
