The insurance company does not want to pay you from their pocket.
After you file a personal injury claim, you may feel that the insurance company will pay you the amount you deserve. However, the reality is that the insurance company does not want to pay you from their pocket, so they will try to minimize your compensation amount with various tactics.
The insurance adjuster works for the company’s best interest.
The insurance company will appoint an insurance adjuster to handle your claim. These insurance adjusters will contact you as soon as your accident. While this insurance adjuster will appear extremely friendly with you, they work for the company’s best interest. When speaking to you, they will ask you tricky questions about your injuries, your accident, and more so that you accidentally speak something which they can use against you to lower your claim. Therefore, you should be careful when speaking to the insurance adjuster.
The insurance company will try to find loopholes in your evidence.
You need to provide evidence to support your personal injury claim. Evidence may include various pictures and videos of the accident scene, your injuries, and more to determine liability and compensation amount. Therefore, when you provide the insurance company with the evidence you have gathered, they will try to find loopholes in your claim. Additionally, they will also try to see if you have committed admission of guilt and prove that you were at fault for the accident. For example, the insurance company will be quick to say that your injuries did not result from the accident. Instead, it occurred from a pre-existing or another factor.
Do not settle your claim unless your lawyer suggests it.
When the insurance company offers a settlement offer, it is vital to consult your lawyer. Never accept the settlement amount by the insurance company unless you are sure that the amount is sufficient to cover your past and future expenses.
