Handling Insurance Companies: Don't Do It Alone
As if sustaining an injury and property damage isn’t bad enough after an auto accident, there is also the problem of dealing with the insurance company. Unfortunately, this is a necessary step after a crash that can be stressful and overwhelming.
Insurance companies are like any other business. Their primary focus is on their own profits and bottom line. As such, when a car crash occurs, they’re looking to minimize the impact on their bottom line as much as possible.
When you need to deal with an insurance company, it’s best to hire a legal advocate to help you avoid going at it alone.
Protecting Your from Being Taken Advantage Of
The time following a car accident can be difficult for a victim. Insurance companies know this. They also know that most people don’t understand the legal aspect and what they need to avoid. So, they may ask certain questions or try and get you to say something that can be construed as guilt.
They may ask whether or not you apologized after a crash, or ask for a statement that they may try to use against you in the future. Typically, they’re recording conversations in hopes of you saying something that hurts your own case.
Do not answer questions without having an attorney first. You don’t want to put your case in jeopardy before it even begins.
Guiding You Through Trial
Whether you’re working through settlement or trial, you never want to face the insurance company alone. Their first attempt will be to offer a settlement that may be much lower than the amount you may earn by going to trial.
If you go to trial against them, know that they have large legal teams looking to minimize the impact of the claim on their own profits.
By hiring a lawyer, you’ll know whether or not you should accept a settlement and have the protection you need if you go to trial. Having a lawyer means being able to fully utilize the evidence available and seeking the compensation you need.
