The Beginning of a Story With an Unhappy Ending

by Staff Blogger | July 28th, 2016

If you’ve been in a serious car accident, it might seem like a reasonable idea to handle your injury claim on your own. After all, you’ve worked with the insurance company before when you secured your policy. How difficult could it be to get your claim approved for the amount you deserve? Well, very difficult actually. When you negotiated your policy, you were essentially negotiating how much money you were going to pay them every month. If I were them, I’d make that experience a good one, and they probably did. Now that you’re injured, you’re trying to negotiate how much they are going to pay you. Don’t expect the same experience.

The truth is, insurance companies are in the business to make money. Their profits are directly tied to how much they pay out in claims. If they can minimize that amount, their profits go up. When they have to pay out large settlements, their profits go down. It’s simple arithmetic. Yet, thousands of accident victims every year believe their claim is different—that the insurance company will understand their situation and pay them what they deserve. That sentiment is the beginning of a story with an unhappy ending.
