Insurance Tricks

What You Should Know Before You File An Insurance Claim

After practicing law you start to see just how tricky insurance companies can be. It's quite an appalling system, really. It doesn't matter what company it is, I've seen them all try and pull tricks. Here are some of the most common:

1. "You don't need a lawyer": Insurance companies will say this because they don't want you, the injured party to hire an attorney. By becoming more informed, the insurance company will have to pay out more. If you hire an attorney, then the company has lost control of the situation. They know that you will have someone in your corner who knows how the insurance and accident systems work. 2. Put you on hold. After the accident, insurance representative will be difficult to reach, that is a given. When you are able to finally contact them, the insurer might say that they are currently investigating the accident and haven't made a decision regarding whose fault the wreck was. If they can save money by slowing down the process, then they will. Plus, the longer that the insurance company can hold onto the money that they owe, the more interest the insurance company will make. 3. Extracting information they can use against you 99 out of 100 times an insurance company will demand that you give them a recorded statement. The reason that they ask for a recorded statement is so that they can gather as much information as they can to defeat your potential lawsuit or reduce the amount of money they will have to pay you on your claim. They won't tell you that you don't have to give a statement to them. The insurance agent is banking on the fact that what you say may be able to be used against you to show that their driver wasn't negligent or that something you did might have contributed to the cause of the wreck. They will try their best to get out of paying you for your doctor or hospital bills by trying to establish prior car wrecks or prior health problems. The best thing that you can do is hire an experienced insurance litigation attorney who is competent. That attorney will be able to help you become informed about your rights.
