Insurance Companies and Personal Injury Claims

By Gerald L. Marcus  Jan. 24, 2012 9:23a

If you or someone you love has been injured in an auto accident or in some other scenario in which negligence or misconduct was the underlying cause, you are probably in a state of confusion and stress. As part of the stress following such an accident, you will undoubtedly have to deal with an insurance company to pursue your claim for damages. This will involve a claims adjustor or representative who will take your information and process your claim. Unfortunately, the first thing you should realize is that the insurance person you deal with is not working for you. He or she is not looking out for your best interests but only for the interests of the company he represents.

Insurance companies have their own team of attorneys working on their behalf to help them keep their profitability. Profitability comes about through paying as little as possible on claims. Thus, insurance companies have developed many tactics which they use to deny, delay, minimize, dispute, and otherwise avoid paying claims. The longer they can stall, the better chance they have that you as a claimant will be so worn down that you will either go away or accept a settlement that is far below what you deserve for the injuries, losses, inconvenience, and other damages you have endured. Thus, the importance of having your own attorney who is experienced and knows how to combat this resistance in your search for a fair financial recovery cannot be overestimated.
