    I think to sue right off the bat is not the right answer,
    You sue Lawyers get half . They also subtract what you get for the expenses occurred presenting the case. Also any settlement paid to you the insurance company get part of your settlement for the losses they occurred .
    It is better not to file and negotiate directly with the company or rep.

    Better to wait until investigation is over and clear cause of the incident is identified. Then decide who, of several likely entities should be sued.

    Otherwise time and money will be wasted suing the wrong people and then starting up new lawsuits. Great plan for lawyers to start too early, but not a great plan for citizens / taxpayers.
