We Are Respected and Feared by Insurance Companies in California
Whether you file a first-party claim against your own insurance company or a third-party claim against another person’s coverage, you can expect the insurer to search for reasons to minimize your payout. There are all sorts of tactics the insurance adjuster might use to dispute your claim, so it is important that you know what to do (and what not to do) to give your case the greatest chance of success. The best way to avoid inadvertently jeopardizing your case is to enlist the help of a reputable attorney. The Pacifica personal injury attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers have many decades of combined experience helping injured clients and their families take on some of the largest insurance companies in California. We know the strategies the claims adjuster might use to challenge your claim, and we will protect your interests from day one. Our dedication to investigating each and every claim thoroughly and aggressively representing our clients has earned us the respect of insurance providers throughout the state. We are passionate about getting accident victims the full compensation they deserve, and we are not afraid to go to trial to do so.
Strategies the Insurance Company May Use to Challenge Your Claim
Insurance adjusters are tasked with investigating claims to find out if they are fraudulent and to identify potential reasons to undervalue or deny them. The tactics used to accomplish these goals have evolved over time, so it is essential that you find a Pacific personal injury attorney who understands how claims adjusters investigate cases. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we’ve experienced and overcome just about every possible complication that can arise during the claims process. This enables our attorneys to anticipate and avoid issues and delays before they arise. It also allows us to help our clients avoid critical mistakes that would reduce their final settlement. Here are just a few tactics insurance companies may use to protect their bottom line:
- Offering a settlement early in the proceedings to “lock in” the damages amount and avoid paying for any unanticipated complications that arise in the future;
- Delaying the proceedings so your debt increases, giving you more incentive to settle;
- Taking your statements out of context to dispute the cause of your injury or the severity of your damages;
- Arguing that your injury was caused by something else or existed before the accident;
- Arguing that your own negligence was the proximate cause of your injury and you should be liable for your own medical bills and other damages;
- Misleading you regarding the amount of insurance coverage available;
- Placing you under surveillance to catch you disobeying your doctor’s orders or participating in activities that would aggravate your injuries; or
- Reviewing your social media accounts for evidence to use against you.
The Pacifica personal injury attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers can help you take the necessary steps to give your claim the best possible chance of resulting in a fair settlement. We are available 24/7 to take your call.
