When you consider how much insurance companies are able to bring in each year by way of premiums, you may find it unfathomable that they would deny claims unreasonably; however, your best interest is not what they have in mind, as difficult as that may be to believe amidst heavily advertised promises. Socking away as much as possible in profits is in their best interest, however, and you can be assured that is the mission insurance companies are on.
If you have been injured in a car accident due to the negligence of others, chances are you have a sense of urgency to get your insurance settlement paid so that you can then pay off medical bills, deal with property damage, and most of all continue on your path to healing. After all, a car crash is a serious physical trauma –and it may be the worst you ever experience in your life. Unfortunately, many motorists who are in car accidents must also deal with the grief and passing of passengers who may have been killed, leaving them to deal with not only the enormous challenge of healing—but also grieving. You may also have been injured but are now having to caretake for a partner or children who may have been debilitated too.
If your insurance company does not seem to be responding quickly or correctly, it is time to consult an attorney like Andrew ‘Pike’ Piekalkiewicz, PLLC as soon as possible. They should be responsible for all communications with the adjusters and the insurance company, fighting for your rights in any case, but especially if the insurance company is acting in bad faith against you.
Unreasonable delays are one of the first red flags that you may have a problem on your hands with your insurance settlement. With legal help, you should be able to get to the bottom of the matter quickly. While delays are one way to get out of paying a settlement, you could have instead received a quick denial very little reason to back it up. Again, the insurance company is hoping to intimidate you, with the goal of watching you back down. You may also experience intimidation tactics as they offer you a lowball figure for a settlement and expect you to take it, intimating that you will not receive anything else. Adjusters may also attempt to strong-arm witnesses into backing down from their testimony, and they may use past medical records, or even your financial situation against you.
