6 Things to Know about Car Accident Insurance Claims (Pt. 1)
April 14, 2014
Traffic accidents are an unfortunate part of life for people who regularly commute, as the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) has estimated that drivers can expect to be involved in at least one motor vehicle collision every five years or so. When car accidents happen, an inevitable part of the aftermath is dealing with insurance companies to file claims and, ideally, get the compensation to which you are entitled for your injuries and losses.
In practice, however, dealing with insurers is far trickier than it may seem on the surface, and filing car accident insurance claims can end up to be far more challenging than people may expect.
Here and in a few upcoming parts of this blog, we will discuss some important things that you should know when it comes to filing claims with insurers after traffic accidents. By being aware of these issues, you can empower yourself while giving yourself the best chances of obtaining the highest possible compensation for your claims.
- Insurers are not on your side, and they are only looking out for themselves – Although you may think of your car insurance policy as a safety net that will protect you when you are in an accident, the fact is that insurers are generally not looking out for you after an accident when you submit a claim.This is because insurance companies are typically more interested in protecting their own profits, rather than your best interests. Therefore, you should not expect insurers to tell you about all of your rights or to disclose the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled after car accidents.
- Working with an experienced attorney like Linda Weimar can be key to resolving your claim as favorably as possible – Given that dealing with insurers can be both complicated and challenging (as well as the fact that how you deal with them can directly affect your compensation), it’s critical that you trust your case to an experienced lawyer like Linda Weimar.
