Things to Know about Insurance Companies

When you’re injured in a serious Milwaukee accident, your first thought may be, “I’ll just file a claim with my insurance company so I can get my settlement now.” Before you do that, though, you may need to know more about these insurance companies.

While many of us would like to know our insurance companies are here to help us, you may be surprised by the tactics they sometimes use to avoid paying out. Protect your future and your compensation by seeking out a lawyer from the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg to help.

They’re Not Always on Your Side

As much as you pay for your insurance policy, you expect them to help you. Sadly, many people find themselves dealing with insurers that are more focused on profits, not on their clients’ health.

For example, let’s say you were in a car accident and you suffered a brain injury that affected your fine motor skills. You may have good days and bad days, but the insurance adjuster may have had an appointment with you on a good day. They may have seen that you were doing well and assumed you were getting better. Or, worse, they may assume that you were lying about your claim. These assumptions hurt your claim and help them protect their profits.

Avoiding Settlements and Bad Faith Claims

When you’re hurt in an accident, you need a settlement offer that meets all your needs. The problem is, the insurance company may only offer a portion of what your claim is worth. Worse, they may be acting in bad faith by refusing to respond to you or not keeping the promises made in their contract.

In these cases, you may have grounds to sue the insurance company for failing to settle with you. Your accident lawyer can help you prepare a claim against them if they refuse to offer a better settlement.

Ask How an Injury Lawyer Can Help You

When you’re seriously hurt, you need to know that your insurance company is on your side. You don’t have the energy or the funds to accept a small settlement offer, one that doesn’t meet your needs or your family’s needs. Unfortunately, the insurance company may refuse to budge for you.
