All too often, we hear the same things from our clients who have tried to resolve things with an insurance company directly. Either the company is calling constantly pressuring people to resolve their cases quickly before they have healed from the accident or sending people into a never-ending circle of unreturned phone calls and intentional delays.
Often, these frustrations get summed up simply with “Why won’t the company just do the right thing?” Well, the quick answer is that by getting people to drop claims or accept much less than a claim is worth equals profits for the insurance companies.
You and the Insurance Company Have Competing Goals
As soon as a truck or car wreck occurs, the insurance company is operating to resolve your case as cheaply as possible. Like it or not, you are in conflict with the insurance company with completely different goals. The company does not care if you are hurt, missing work, have bills coming in or know the process. It simply wants the cheap resolution.
You Deserve to Be Treated Fairly
Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- You do not need to settle quickly;
- The insurance company pays for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life;
- You are entitled to compensation for time missed from work; and,
- It does not change your rights if the insurance company closes its file.
