Dealing With Insurance Companies
Insurance companies are businesses and they’re out to make a profit. Naturally, this doesn’t happen if they always pay out hundreds of thousands of dollars, or even millions, in claims. As such, they will go to any length to avoid paying your claim.
They will often start by appearing compassionate and later tender a lowball settlement for your injuries. They might try any manner of convincing and trickery to get you to sign off on this offer. If you do, you could end up with less than you deserve. If you refuse, they might threaten you by blaming you for the accident, claiming you’ll get nothing if you pursue the case, and even saying that you’re faking your injuries.
Despite what the insurance company may tell you, dealing with insurance adjusters requires someone in your corner who knows the laws and can step up and hold them accountable. The right personal injury lawyer will remind everyone who the victim is and give you the best possible shot at significant compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered, any damage to your quality of life and relationships, mounting medical bills, lost wages, and more.
