Maximize the amount of money you receive for your car accident case

There are two ways to increase the amount of money you receive when you are involved in an automobile accident. The first is to get the most you can from the automobile insurance company for the person who caused the accident. Most firms work to maximize this amount. After all, their fees increase if they get more money for you from the auto insurance company for the person who caused the accident.

The second way to increase the amount that you receive for your automobile accident case, is to reduce the medical bills and health insurance company liens that you must repay. When you receive a settlement in an automobile accident case, you must use the proceeds to pay any unpaid medical bills owed to doctors, hospitals, etc. Additionally, your health insurance company, medicaid, or medicare has a lien for amounts they have paid for treatment of your injuries and that lien must be repaid. However, it is possible to get doctors to reduce the amount they will accept as full payment and health insurance companies to reduce the amount of their lien. Reducing this amount means you get more money from your automobile accident case. And fighting to get you the largest reductions possible is what distinguishes the good firms from the great firms. A great firm will fight to make sure you receive the highest reduction of medical bills and liens possible. The attorneys will not receive any more money for doing this but they do it to give their clients the best possible representation.

At Leist Warner we will fight extremely hard to get you the most money from the insurance companies and we will fight extremely hard to get you the largest possible reduction of the amount you must repay doctors and health insurance companies. We consider it so important that we recently fought with a health insurance company for more than a year to get a reduction of their lien for our client so that our client could put more money in his pocket. We did not receive any additional money for doing this, but we did it because it is the right thing to do.

And of course at Leist Warner, we don’t charge anything for representing you in your auto accident case if we do not recover money for you.
