Understand the Insurance Adjuster Serves the Interests of the Insurance Company
Insurance agents may be friendly and pleasant when trying to sell you a policy with their carrier, but ultimately, they’re not your friends. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses: Their goal is to protect their bottom line, not offer you a fair payout.
These companies employ teams of lawyers and adjusters whose job is to minimize your compensation or justify not paying you anything at all. To that end, they use various underhanded tactics, such as:
- Falling to acknowledge your claim within the legal deadline
- Undervaluing or underpaying your claim
- Pressuring you to settle early before knowing the full extent of your losses, thereby giving up the right to ask for more money later
- Stalling your claim in the hopes that the mounting medical bills and living expenses will force you to accept a lower settlement
- Denying your legitimate claim for no apparent reason
An experienced auto accident injury lawyer knows the tricks insurers use and how to counteract them. Having a lawyer on your side significantly increases your chances of recovering maximum compensation.
Be Careful Not to Make a Statement That Will Hurt Your Claim — Consult With Your Lawyer
There are many dos and don’ts after an auto accident, but one of the crucial mistakes to avoid is giving a formal statement or saying anything that could be construed as an admission of guilt. Even something as innocuous as saying, “I’m sorry; are you okay?” to the other driver or making a Facebook post about the accident may jeopardize your claim.
While you should let your insurer know about the accident as soon as possible, don’t provide any details or answer further questions before speaking to a Colorado Springs auto accident attorney.
Not sure where to turn? Our auto accident lawyers at The Foley Law Firm, can take over your case and handle all communications with the insurance company for you. Call us today for a free consultation.
Be Aware the Insurance Company May Offer a Low Settlement Amount
Never take the first offer the insurance company throws your way. The initial amount is likely to be significantly lower than what you have a right to.
Insurers often take advantage of the vulnerable position and lack of legal and medical knowledge of accident survivors by pressuring them to settle early. Many catastrophic injuries, such as burns and traumatic brain injuries (TBI), require continuous and even lifelong medical care. Your long-term prognosis won’t be clear for quite some time after the accident.
If you accept the initial offer, you won’t be able to go back and ask for more money later when you know the full extent of your injuries, expenses, and other losses.
When you work with The Foley Law Firm, our team will thoroughly investigate your case and evaluate your losses to determine the full value of your claim. We’ll also negotiate with the insurance company to secure an offer that covers your actual losses. If the insurer offers an inadequate amount or refuses to settle, we aren’t afraid to take your case to court.
