COMMON TACTICS THE INSURANCE COMPANY WILL USE TO TRY AND DENY YOUR INJURY CLAIM
- Offer an Early Settlement: It's essential to be aware if you receive an early settlement offer from the insurance company. If the insurance company is trying to get you to agree to a settlement amount before your medical treatment is complete and before you know the extent of the damages, do not agree to their offer. Always let your lawyer be the one to contact them. You only get one chance to file a compensation claim, so make sure you do not settle for less than you deserve.
- Place Blame on You: Do not speak with the insurance company over a recorded line until you have first consulted with an attorney. The insurance adjuster will often try to place partial or full blame on you so they can offer you a lower settlement for the accident.
- Deny your Medical Claim: The insurance company will always try to offer you less money for your medical expenses, and if you wait too long to get treatment, or if you miss appointments, they will use this as a reason to reduce or deny your medical expense claim.
- Delay: In some cases, the insurance company will take months to do anything in the hopes that you will accept their settlement offer or drop the claim altogether.
Insurance companies always have their interests in mind when it comes to an accident. Regardless of how nice the insurance adjuster may seem over the phone, it is their job to save the insurance company money by having you agree to a lower amount.
Do not try to deal with the insurance company on your own. Contact a car accident lawyer for legal advice as soon as possible.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HIRE A CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY?
The Brown Firm car accident lawyers always provide potential clients with a free consultation. During the consultation, the attorney will ask for details regarding your accident to determine whether or not they can assist with your case.
Once the attorney agrees to represent you, they work on a contingency fee, which means you do not owe any money out-of-pocket for our expert legal services. Your attorney will work diligently to win your case.
When your case is complete, and the attorney has obtained a fair settlement, attorney fees and medical fees are taken from the compensation check, and you receive the remainder of the amount.
Our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis so that every accident victim receives expert legal advice regardless of their financial status.
