How Insurance Companies Treat Injury Victims

If you have been injured in an accident, you will likely be dealing with an insurance company. You can protect yourself by knowing a little bit about the insurance company's methods and motivations. This will help you avoid making costly mistakes.

The Insurance Company Is Not On Your Side

Despite slogans to the contrary, the insurance company is not on your side. However, insurance adjusters and other insurance company representatives will act very friendly. They will tell you that they care about you and want to help you. Keep in mind that their job is to get you to accept the lowest possible settlement.

Insurance adjusters and other insurance company staff may contact you while you are in pain and still recovering. They know that you want to put all of this behind you and move on with your life as soon as possible. They will take advantage of the fact that you may not know exactly how much money you deserve. Even if the money being offered seems good, do not sign off on a settlement until you have discussed your claim with an attorney and verified that you are not entitled to more than you are being offered.
