Why You Shouldn’t Take the Insurance Company’s Word after a Crash
Insurance companies spend a lot of money on advertising campaigns that are designed to convince people they’re benevolent companies that are quick to pay big checks for life’s inconveniences and tragedies. But that couldn’t be further from the case!
Insurance is a lucrative business, but only when “the little guy”—i.e., the policyholders and the people they injure—sees their car accident claim reduced or denied. In fact, that’s the insurance company’s entire business model, and they have teams of people called adjusters whose primary job is to pay claimants as little money as possible.
So if you’ve recently been hurt in an auto accident that wasn’t your fault, you may have already been contacted by the insurance company with a settlement offer. Or, if you’re pursing compensation from your own insurance provider, you may have been promised a check for your medical bills and lost wages. But insurance companies are notorious for dragging the legal process out for months or going back on their word.
That’s why it’s important to have an experienced lawyer on your side. At Brian Hodgkiss Injury Lawyers, our Green Bay auto accident attorneys hold insurance companies to their word and their contracts. Insurers are quick to drop policyholders when they believe they’ve violated their contracts, so it should work both ways, right?
