Insurance Companies Will Constantly Pressure you to Settle for an Unfair Amount
Even on a good day, insurance companies can be tough negotiators. It seems impossible to get either a straight story or a reasonable sum of money out of them. Why waste your time and patience with their tactics designed to frustrate you at every turn? Let your lawyer handle the insurance companies that are out to protect their interests. If you’ve lost a loved one in an auto accident and seek legal damages, their interests and yours are opposites. They’ll use adjusters to try and deny your claims, even if they appear to be on your side. Our Law Firms’ former accident injury clients have learned through experience that the best way to deal with insurance adjusters, especially during your time of unfathomable grief over the sudden loss of your loved one. Their remedy is to simply ignore them. Adjusters don’t call our clients. Without exception, we make them call us instead. When adjusters can’t talk to you, they don’t have a chance to twist your words around and use them to deny your legal rights.
Many times an insurance company will try to pressure you to settle your claim or lawsuit for less than it is worth: sometimes, much less. Under some circumstances, our attorneys believe that accepting a fair settlement offer is beneficial to the grieving victim’s family. An unfair settlement can be devastating, especially if that same grief is used to victimize surviving family members. And don’t forget that when you accept a settlement, you permanently give up your right to sue the defendant again if it turns out that more was justified. The settlement is all that you will ever collect, so it’s important not to accept an offer unless it’s fair. And the only way to determine a fair settlement from an insurance company that wants to victimize you is with the assistance of an experienced fatal auto accident injury lawyer.
Insurance companies know that most families of accident victims are most likely bleeding cash due to all those unanticipated expenses arising from the fatal wreck. They have hefty medical, funeral, and other emergency expenses that need to be paid quickly. And if their loved one was also earning family income, their budget is suddenly much smaller, and there’s little, if any, leftover to pay these new and substantial, accident-related expenses.
An insurance company wants to entice you with just enough fast cash that might get you back to even. But what if that’s not the end of your financial distress? Settlements you accept from an insurance company before you have an experienced lawyer on your side never benefit your surviving family in the long run. Don’t let the defendant and their insurance company get away with paying you less than you deserve for your wrongful auto accident fatality claim. Reach out to our Law Firm quickly to learn what your case is worth. Then you’ll know whether the defendant’s insurance company’s offer is truly fair.
If you have a bad feeling about how the insurance company appears to be handling your case, trust your instincts. You’re probably right. In spite of their protests to the contrary, insurance companies aren’t really in business to help people but to make money. The more creative they are in finding ways to deny legitimate claims, the more money they make. This is especially true with most insurers who aggressively market themselves as “minimum coverage” firms, who take in premiums but drag their feet when it’s time to pay a legitimate (and full) claim. However, we have been able to deal fairly with a few of them. Regardless, you should call a lawyer sooner than later, if you have a bad feeling, or if any of these circumstances apply.
