I work hard to ensure that my injured clients get the maximum compensation
they deserve under the law as well as a sense of justice and maybe closure.
That means going up against the big insurance companies which want to
get away with paying as little as possible to boost their bottom lines.
In short, the insurance companies have a financial incentive to belittle
injury claims, but sometimes that can lead to belittling the people filing
those claims too.
The big insurance companies may use a variety of aggressive settlement
tactics to get you to settle your claim for much less than it may be worth.
They may attempt to contact you within a few hours or days of your injury,
before you have an opportunity to see a doctor. They may be aggressive.
They may try to pressure you into a quick settlement. They may tell you
that your claim is not worth much. They may offer you a low ball settlement
and tell you to take it or leave it.
Most people don't realize they're sitting ducks. Maybe this is
the first time you've ever been injured in an accident. How do you
know whether the settlement the insurance company is offering you is
fair and reasonable? You don't and that's the point. That's what the big insurance
companies are banking on (literally).
The insurance claims process is not a level playing field. It favors the
big insurance companies. If you're not familiar with the process,
it would be easy to make a mistake that could end up costing you a lot
of money. Unless you do something to level the playing field, it's
not going to get leveled. If the insurance companies don't want you
to know the true value of your case, find out for yourself. There are many
that go into determining the value of a particular case. It's best
to talk to someone who knows the claims process, knows the value of your
case, and will work for your best interest.
The big insurance companies have spent mountains of money on public relations
to convince the general public that all injury claims are fake and injury
lawyers can't be trusted. By raising public awareness of the deceptive
and aggressive tactics used by the big insurance companies, I continue
to fight for my clients' against these Goliaths who think of nothing
