Sometimes people settle cases on their own without the help of a lawyer. That is wonderful if it works. If you do this, be careful to make sure that the insurance adjuster or company you are negotiating with can be trusted. Sometimes non-lawyers can be taken advantage of when handling insurance claim disputes on their own. A lawsuit recently filed by a Miami Beach woman injured while boarding a flight alleges that American Airlines offered to pay her claim but strung her along until the statute of limitations had expired. Once that limitations period expires the claim may be forever barred. Before you talk to an insurance adjuster, we suggest that you consult with a lawyer Board Certified by the Florida Bar in Civil Trial Law. Most firms offer free initial consultations and will advise you about the appropriate limitations period(s) involved in the case.
