Were you or a loved one injured? After a traumatic crash resulting in injury or death of a loved one, the last thing you want to worry about is having to protect yourself or your family from tricks of the insurance trade. Our personal injury team can help protect you and your family from suffering further injuries and debt from this industry that seems singularly focused on their bottom line.
These six secrets make perfect common sense. The way the insurance companies work in their own favor, it isn’t easy to recognize if you are falling for one of these secrets.
First Secret the Insurance Company Doesn’t Want You to Know:
You DO NOT need to give a recorded statement.
Second Secret the Insurance Company Doesn’t Want You to Know:
The claims adjuster for the defendant driver’s insurance company is NOT your friend. The adjuster for the driver that hit you will act like they are your friend and make it seem like they are helping you. It is their job to help their boss, the person who signs their check. In this case it is Allstate, or Farmers, or State Farm…you get the picture. Their job is to pay you as little as they can get away with without even knowing what harms you have suffered or the losses you have incurred or will incur.
Third Secret the Insurance Company Doesn’t Want You to Know:
You DO NOT need to sign a medical record release before they can help you or settle your claim. If someone has asked you to do this, stop what you are doing right now and call us at 512-386-8117. We will take the time to explain why you DO NOT have to sign a release of any kind. We will also explain the importance of contacting an attorney before signing anything. We do not charge for this service.
Fourth Secret the Insurance Company Doesn’t Want You to Know:
You NEVER have to talk to the defendant’s insurance company. That is why you hire an attorney. Contact us for a free consultation. We will take the time to explain the entire legal process.
Fifth Secret the Insurance Company Doesn’t Want You to Know:
They DO NOT want you to get an attorney. Think about that…they don’t want you to have all the information you need to be informed. Information is vital to you knowing what decisions to make about your case, your treatment and when or if to settle your claim.
Sixth Secret the Insurance Company Doesn’t Want You to Know:
Your only obligation is to cooperate with your own insurance company. You have no obligation to the other driver who caused you harm or their insurance company.
