Saying NO To An Insurance Agreement!
You had what you thought was a great agreement. Yet, when you received the documents in the mail, the points you discussed in your phone conversation and emails weren’t listed. You immediately call the insurance adjuster back only to be told that the agreement you received is exactly what it should be and for you to just sign it.
But the more you look over the agreement the more worried you are about any future claims or payouts. You’ve already been anxiously waiting eight months to get to this point and now it seems you are being forced to either sign or play the waiting game even longer.
Unfortunately, not only do insurance adjusters take part in these types of shenanigans but so do some very unscrupulous lawyers. They prey on your vulnerabilities. They know exactly how long you’ve been waiting. They know that if they put the pressure on you, you’ll crack. And once you’re at that breaking point, they can basically pay out whatever amount and you’ll sign off as accepting.
Nope, not cool at all!
In fact, it’s downright insulting.
You are treated as a statistic and not as a human being. You are forced to the breaking point and made to suffer for months, sometimes years until you are offered even a moderate settlement.
Yet, if you sign the agreement the insurance adjuster has sent you, you might not have enough to pay your medical claims, let alone any wages lost by not being able to work. Doesn’t seem right does it? Doesn’t seem ethical? Sadly, it happens more than you think and if it wasn’t for caring lawyers who understand what to look for and how to fix it, these adjusters would get away with it all the time.
Before you are strong-armed into signing, or you think the adjuster is back-peddling on his word, consult an attorney who concentrates in personal injury cases. Don’t try to go it alone. Seek out counsel from an experienced lawyer who only works with injured victims to help get them the maximum amount for their injuries.
That’s right I said an experienced lawyer who only works for the injured.
Why is this important?
Well simply, you don’t want a lawyer who plays both sides. Someone who represents the victims and the insurance. That’s a huge conflict of interest. And when that happens in most cases it’s the victims who are harmed twice. You see, the lawyer is getting paid by the insurance to settle the claim quickly and the adjuster is getting paid to keep the claim low.
