Insurance Tactics You Need to Know
If this is you first time having to deal with an insurance company, there are certain things you need to know as you prepare to fight the insurance company for the compensation that you’re entitled to.
To start, the insurer is not here to benefit you. In fact, you can expect them to fight you every step of the way as you seek a settlement offer that meets your needs. The insurance adjusters job is to not only work on the claim, but to minimize the amount that they’ll be ordered to pay.
Unfortunately, the ways the insurer goes about taking advantage of the claimant are often unscrupulous. Insurance adjusters are known for requesting a statement from claimants, only to take that statement and manipulate their words in a way that suggests they admitted fault or accepted responsibility for the cause of the accident in some way.
This is just one example of underhanded tactics used by greedy insurance companies, and you have to do everything in your power to hold them to account for their financial responsibility to you so you can begin to move forward with your life.
