Like many businesses involving the law and contracts, the insurance industry is a swamp of confusion and misrepresentation. Insurance companies are multimillion-dollar companies who know this game well and use their vast resources to kill or maim your personal injury claims. Let’s start from the beginning. An insurance claim is a request to the at-fault driver’s auto liability insurer for compensation stemming from a motor vehicle collision. When you make a claim to the at-fault driver’s insurance company, they will perform an investigation with the goal of discrediting your claim. The more issues they find, the more leverage they will have to deny your claim or lowball negotiations.
If you were injured as a result of another driver’s negligence, here are a few tips to ensure a smooth process.
Last, but certainly not least, consult with a personal injury attorney. Your attorney’s job is to protect your rights, look out for your best interests, and to intervene when the insurance company is acting poorly. After a car accident, an attorney and his staff can help you efficiently walk through the minefield that is the insurance claims process to ensure that you take all the necessary steps towards a proper resolution. Moreover, the attorney becomes your advocate and acts as the middleman with the insurance companies, so you can instead get back to your daily life.
