Making the Big Insurance Companies
Treat You Fairly
Auto Accident Lawyer in San Diego
Following an accident, victims often are hurt, confused, and angry. It
is a time when you may be very vulnerable and easily taken advantage of
by unscrupulous insurance companies.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle, motorcycle, or other accident,
the first few days after the accident is a critical time to protect your
rights and ensure that you will be fairly compensated for your injury.
Remember, the big insurance companies are NOT on your side. The big insurance
companies will do whatever it takes to protect their profits, even if
it means cheating you out of the compensation you deserve. Do NOT speak
to an insurance adjuster before you have consulted a San Diego car accident
lawyer whose job it is to protect
I have seen the big insurance companies use many tricks and tactics to
avoid paying for a client's injury. Know your rights and be wary of
the big insurance companies.
Below are some of the more common tricks of the big insurance companies:
They will pretend to be on your side. The insurance adjuster may appear to be sympathetic. He or she may promise
you that the insurance company will treat you fairly and compensate you
fairly. He or she may offer to settle your case right away. Remember,
the big insurance companies are NOT on your side. These tricks are designed
to get you NOT to hire a lawyer.
They will try to minimize your injuries. The insurance adjuster may tell you that your injuries are not as severe
as you think, or that the insurance company doctor has already decided
the amount of compensation for your injury. The big insurance companies
do NOT "know best" when it comes to your injuries.
They will tell you do not need a lawyer. Insurance industry studies show that accident victims who retain an lawyer
receive SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER SETTLEMENTS than those without a lawyer.
Insurance adjusters may tell you that it's an open and shut case,
that a lawyer can't or won't help your case, or that hiring a
lawyer will only delay settlement. These things are not true and are designed
to get you NOT to hire a lawyer. Beware anyone telling you that you don't
need a lawyer.
They will delay your claim. Insurance companies will use a variety of tactics, such as switching
adjusters, just to delay your claim. In the end, they're hoping you'll
get tired of their games and just go away.
These are only some of the tactics I've seen over the past several
years. DO NOT TAKE CHANCES WITH YOUR HEALTH. You may be facing months
or even years of medical treatment for an injury that was not your fault.
