Insurance Companies Want To Keep Their Money
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident and you have insurance, you may assume that the insurance company will pay for everything. That’s what they’re there for, right? Unfortunately, this is not the way it works. Insurance companies are big businesses, and their primary interest is profits and protecting their bottom line. Insurance companies are never going to pay more than they absolutely have to on a claim, and, given their significant financial resources, they automatically have the upper hand over injured persons who don’t have a lawyer. That is why it’s so important for injury victims to work with one of our experienced personal injury attorneys. We know the tactics used by insurance companies and how to counter them.
Never accept an initial offer from an insurance company to settle an auto accident claim without speaking to one of our firm’s attorneys. Insurance companies routinely extend low-ball offers to unrepresented injury victims in the hopes that they will settle their case for significantly less than what it is actually worth.
Different Levels Of Insurance
Depending on whether you have full tort or limited tort coverage on your car insurance, the resources available to you after an accident can vary greatly. Additionally, it’s possible that the person who caused your accident has minimal insurance or no insurance at all. The state of each party’s insurance is essential when determining the compensation available after a car accident. Our firm can help clarify your situation at your free initial consultation.
