What Tactics Do Insurance Companies Use To Deny Or Limit Personal Injury Settlement Amounts?
If your medical bills don’t add up to much, they will not give you as much money to settle the case. If they take the position that you caused the accident and you’ve got the position that they caused the accident, they will most likely be very hostile throughout the process. Regardless of the damage to the passenger, another primary consideration is the apparent damage to the vehicle. This also applies to traffic light disputes since neither party can easily prove what part of the cycle the light was on at the time of the accident.
You may be able to argue it, but you can’t prove it. You must be able to satisfy the burden of proof, which rests on the plaintiff, our client. If you’ve got the burden of proof, then you probably have not met the burden of proof, which means that you can’t go forward with your claim. Due to these situations, I always highly recommend people use dashcams in their vehicles. It makes the burden of proof much easier to reach.
Why Should I Hire An Experienced Personal Injury Attorney Versus Trying To Deal With Insurance Companies On My Own?
I’ve been practicing law for many years, and I have handled hundreds of cases. I know the tricks of the trade, and I know the tricks that they’ll pull on you to reduce the amount of recovered damages as much as possible. Hiring a lawyer can mean the difference between receiving $500 and $10,000. It is a matter of knowing how to proceed, what your tools are, and knowing what you are entitled to under the law. Generally, you are entitled to total compensation for the entire medical bill before insurance pays, which many people don’t realize. They will get an offer from an adjuster for the amount that the insurance company paid on the bill, which is far less than what should be offered, but most people don’t know better.
