When you’re hurt from injuries you suffered in a car accident, you want to get better – and fast. You want your claim handled fairly and you want a reasonable settlement. Unfortunately in many cases that’s not easy, and there’s a big reason: Insurance companies are not your friend.
Their warm and fuzzy (and even sometimes funny) TV commercials may give you the impression that they care about your situation and that they’re there to help you. But remember – insurance companies are corporations that care only about profits, executive bonuses and stockholder dividends. Having to pay out claims really gets in the way of those goals.
You see it in several ways. An insurance company representative may ask you to sign something or ask for a recorded statement so they can use it against you later. They may offer you a quick check for a paltry amount, hoping to get you to sign away your legitimate claim. And if those tactics don’t work, the insurance company may try to drown you in paperwork and endless delays, hoping you’ll get tired and agree to a small settlement just to make them go away. In extreme cases they may even force you to file a lawsuit to make them pay what they rightfully owe you.
As I say in the TV commercials we’re running right now, I’ve never seen a personal injury case where you don’t need an attorney. The reason is simple. Insurance companies are not your friend.
