Is Your Insurance Company Really On Your Side?

After a car accident, the first place many people turn for compensation is their own insurance company. Many are surprised when they are met with resistance. After all, you've paid your insurance premiums for years in case an accident occurs. Shouldn't your insurer openly provide you with the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and make up for your lost wages? Unfortunately, the answer is no.

Insurance companies are for-profit companies. Their goal is protect their bottom line. Claims adjusters - as nice and caring as they may seem - are trained to payout the smallest amount possible.

The claims adjuster handling your case will attempt to get you to agree to a settlement as soon as possible. This is not in your best interests. Injuries often evolve, and worsen, over time. Until you know the full scope of your injuries - and the effect they will have on your ability to earn a living and live your life - you should not think about settlement. Those that quickly settle their injury claims often find themselves in a bad situation where the settlement money has run out, but medical bills are still coming in.

Once you accept that settlement check there is no going back. Your case is done and you won't be able to get further compensation from your insurer.

If you are like most people, you are unsure of your rights and unclear on the terms of your insurance policy. The best thing you can do for yourself is to work with an experienced injury lawyer who can make sure your insurance company treats you fairly.
