If you yourself are involved in a personal injury case in Orange County, chances are you are dealing with many stressful situations:

  • Healing, many times painful, injuries
  • Repeated surgeries
  • Medical bills piling up
  • Calls from insurance companies on both sides of the case
  • Removal from your normal routine

Who should handle calls from insurance companies?

With all of these stresses, it’s easy for a plaintiff to want to give it all up and deal with the defendant’s insurance company directly.  This is a big mistake.  If you choose to deal directly with the opposing side, you can very easily miss out on the compensation you deserve.  Don’t let pressure from the defendant’s insurance company force you into settling.  Let your insurance company and an Orange County personal injury attorney handle any calls from the insurance company on the defendant’s side.  For help with personal injury cases in Orange County and the surrounding areas, contact Eric Dubin and let him handle the insurance companies for you!
