Do You Need to Hire a Bus Accident Attorney?
Even if you are eligible for financial compensation from Pierce Transit, it can be difficult to obtain the money you deserve due to insurance bad faith tactics. Insurance bad faith is a common way for companies to save money on claims. You may need a lawyer to represent you during an insurance claim for the best possible results. Otherwise, Pierce Transit’s insurer may succeed in convincing you to accept much less than your losses are worth. A lawyer can handle negotiations for you to ensure fair and full results.
