Have you been in an accident caused by the negligence of another driver? Did you sustain injuries? You deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering. Having a lawyer on your side when you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence is going to save you from being left with a mountain of medical bills.
Insurance Companies are Not Your Friends
Though we are all required to have car insurance, it isn’t always easy to get compensation for damages or injuries. In many cases, insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying out on your claim. However, Attorney Albers used to work as an insurance adjuster and this experience has given him insight on how insurance companies protect their profits over their people. The most common approach to getting rid of your claim is to employ Deny, Delay, Defend tactics.
Deny – The first thing that most insurance companies will do is deny your claim outright. They’ll cite small details or claim that you didn’t file correctly, and try to leave you high and dry.
Delay – The next thing they will do is delay the process with very low settlement offers, which you should not take under any circumstances. These offers will likely be too low to cover your expenses and, in the event that you have a long-term disability, you will end up paying a lot more down the line.
Defend – The final step that an insurance company will take to avoid paying out on a claim is to defend their decisions in court. Insurance companies often have a powerful legal team on their side to help them, which means that you’re going to need an experienced lawyer on your side to take them on.
You Need an Advocate to Help You
Insurance companies have mastered the art of giving their clients the runaround. They know the ins and outs of their contracts and how to trap you to either get rid of your claim or to drag the process out for a very long time. In the meantime, you’ll have your injuries to deal with. The last thing you need is a messy or lengthy battle with the insurance company.
That’s why you need an experienced lawyer on your side to help you whether you’re dealing with a car accident, a pedestrian accident, or a bicycle accident. We can even help with premesis liability incidents like dog bites.
