The first thing most people do after a serious motor-vehicle accident is to get medical attention and treatment for their injuries. After they are involved in an accident and start to get medical bills and repair bills for their vehicle, they turn to the at-fault party’s insurance company, or even their own insurance company, to make a claim for damages. Additionally, if they have under-insured or uninsured motorist coverage, their own insurance may compensate them for their bodily injury as well.
However, most people have the incorrect assumption that these insurance companies will help them during the claims process. Most people are unaware that the insurance company’s primary objective is to pay the minimal amount possible on these claims! It is the insurance company’s primary objective to maximize profits, and they can only do this by paying the lowest settlement amount for their claims. I have routinely seen insurance adjusters low-ball claimants, and even deny claims, in hopes that people will not seek legal representation to pursue their claims.
For this reason, if you are involved in a car accident it is essential for you to consult with and retain an experienced injury attorney to help you file a claim against the insurance company, and even a lawsuit if necessary to best protect your interests. Insurance companies thrive off taking advantage of people ignorant to their legal rights, and the true value of their claims.
