I was injured and I have insurance company representatives trying to talk to me, what should I do?2020-05-28T09:16:13-04:00

You should not speak with any insurance representatives, lawyers or any other person without first obtaining your own lawyer to represent you.  The main purpose an insurance company has for contacting you is to limit liability and to avoid paying claims.  If you speak with an insurance representative, you are at risk of making a statement that can be used against you in the future.  Our law office in Miami provides a free consultation for anyone that has been involved in a personal injury.  We handle Puerto Rico and Florida personal injury cases on a contingency basis meaning that we do not get paid unless there is a recovery. For further clarification about your legal rights with regards to personal injury law, please feel free to contact us and one of our personal injury attorneys in Miami will be happy to help you.
