Insurance Companies: friend or foe?
The legal process is tricky enough without factoring in the games insurance companies play to fool first time accident victims into poor decisions. Using gimmicks and flashy settlement offers, insurers laugh all the way to the bank as they profit from victims’ ignorance.
In an effort to stop their unjust profiting, this second installment of the “twelve things an insurance company doesn’t want you to know” focuses on an attorney’s role in challenging the insurers’. Familiarize yourself with these last six little-known facts before you’re involved in an accident and avoid falling into the insurance companies’ traps.
(7)If you are a passenger in a friend or relative’s car, you can collect without putting your loved one in financial turmoil.
Recovering fully from an accident doesn’t have to mean pushing your friend into bankruptcy. By arranging your settlement so that your friend has to pay nothing out of pocket, Mr. Atas can ensure you get the compensation you deserve, without compromising your friendship.
(8)Quick settlement offers are often insufficient.
If you’ve been involved in an accident and the other driver is responsible, you will likely receive a call from the other driver’s insurance company offering a seemingly attractive settlement. Be warned that this offer, while it may cover your medical expenses and lost wages, may also be substantially smaller than an award you could win for additional factors, such as any unwanted lifestyle changes or resulting pain. Always check with your attorney before accepting a settlement offer to make sure you aren’t getting short-changed!
(9)Attorneys know how much the insurance company will pay on a case.
The real value of your case is how much a judge or jury will award.
An experienced attorney knows how much compensation your case will bring in and can affect the eventual award by presenting your case in the most favorable light possible.
(10)Specialization can be more important than you think.
With the ever-changing laws and regulations, it is increasingly important to consult an attorney who has experience handling auto accident cases. Picking a lawyer who is up to date with changes in the law will make the difference in your settlement.
(11)Hiring an attorney does not necessarily mean your case will go to trial.
Just because you decide to consult an attorney about your auto accident does not mean your case will result in a trial. In fact, very few cases end up in court. Being prepared for trial is important, however, as the insurance companies will often offer greater settlements if they know you are ready to present your case. Put Mr. Atas in your corner to fight on your behalf and you’ll no doubt come out with your arms raised above your head.
(12)Insurance companies are not your friend. Insurance companies are in the business to make money. The more money they can save in your case, the more money the insurance company gets to put in the bank. Insurance adjustors have been schooled on how to take advantage of people not represented by an attorney.Don’t jeopardize your money; arm yourself against the adjustor’s ploys by entrusting an equally savvy lawyer.
