If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you’re facing medical bills and time away from work. There’s plenty of evidence to prove that someone else’s negligence caused your injuries—so why is getting fair compensation from the insurance company so difficult?
Unfortunately, insurance companies are in business to make money, which means they look for ways to pay claimants as little as possible. In fact, they have teams of adjusters whose sole job is to find ways to reduce or deny otherwise valid claims.
Insurance companies often use the following tactics to try to avoid paying you the money you deserve:
- Getting you to accept a lowball offer—The insurance company may offer you a seemingly substantial settlement before you understand the true cost of your accident-related expenses. Accepting their initial offer may prevent you from pursuing additional compensation.
- Doubting the extent or severity of your injuries—Even if you received medical treatment shortly after your accident, the insurance company may believe that you weren’t treated quickly enough and assume that your injuries aren’t that serious.
- Using your own words against you—Whether it’s a social media post about your injuries, an admission to the adjuster that you may have been partially at fault for the accident, or a conversation about previous similar injuries, your own words and statements may be used against you.
