Why Should I Hire a Dunkin’ Donuts Accident Lawyer?
Without an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side, the insurance companies will take advantage of you by getting you to do things that hurt your case which you are not required to do. For instance, Dunkin’ will insist on you giving them a recorded statement when you are not required to do so. Dunkin’ will also ask for unrestricted medical authorizations, which we would never permit, to get past medical records to discount, reduce, minimize or deny your injuries. Dunkin’ may also seek to have you examined by one of its so called “independent” doctors who will deny your injuries are related to the accident. We would never allow this without Court intervention. When you hire The Datny Law Firm, we handle the insurance companies while you focus on healing.
Another important reason to hire a skilled Dunkin’ Accident Lawyer and Slip and Fall Attorney is to properly and timely investigate your incident. Important evidence, surveillance footage and photos may not be preserved if you fail to hire a lawyer or wait too long. Witnesses may also be lost if not identified and contacted immediately.
