Injury Claim Settlement-Things to have in mind

If you have an injury claim settlement, here you will find valuable information to keep in mind.

Injured victims who are seeking legal representation should generally not trust insurance companies – even if it is their own. Insurance companies are for-profit entities that want to pay the least amount of money possible to injured victims. It can be an uphill battle to receive the full insurance benefits you deserve. 

Contact a personal injury law firm if you are experiencing trouble with an insurance claim. You need an experienced attorney who understands how insurance companies use many tactics to avoid or deny paying claims. A personal injury attorney can also file legal claims in civil court when necessary to seek financial compensation.

Insurance Companies Do Not Have Your Best Interests In Mind 

Insurance companies want to both collect premiums and reduce their losses. Any insurance company has to reduce losses to stay in business, and when insurance companies pay benefits, they lose money. There are many ways that insurance companies try to take advantage of you following a car crash or another type of accident, including:

  1. Convincing you to give a recorded statement against your interests
  2. Promising a quick check if you accept the first offer (which is usually far too low)
  3. Telling you that you do not need an attorney for the claim process
  4. Saying they are on your side and you can trust the adjuster

An attorney can send a demand letter to the insurance company and seek compensation for your injuries. Often, the insurance company will return an offer that is much less than you demanded. If the insurance company does not want to pay a reasonable amount, then an attorney can file legal claims and begin the litigation process

You Need A Personal Injury Attorney to Communicate with the Insurance Company

Insurance companies will try to contact you after you suffer an injury and speak with you on the phone. They are not doing this to help you, but instead, they are trying to get you to admit liability or make another mistake. You need an attorney to represent you in all communications with the insurance company, so the adjuster knows that you cannot be manipulated or deceived. 

We can help you deal with insurance claims adjusters, as you do not want to make any mistakes that can harm your case. A skilled attorney knows how to respond when insurance companies request medical records or send subrogation letters. If you do not have an attorney on your side, you might be fighting a losing battle, but the right legal help gives you the leverage you need for a successful claim.
