Following a car accident, you can expect to go through a number of obstacles that can make an already difficult situation even more daunting. One of the harder parts to endure is dealing with the opposing party’s insurance company.
When someone else’s negligence causes an accident, their insurance company is tasked with minimizing the amount they pay out to the injured party. There are a number of reasons this can be so difficult, especially when already dealing with physical, emotional, and financial hardships.
The Insurance Company Has a Large Legal Team
The defendant’s insurance company is often backed by a large legal team dedicated to one thing and one thing only: protecting the profits and bottom line of the insurance company. As such, they’re trying to limit the amount of compensation they pay out.
This may mean trying to use statements to turn the liability around and put blame on the injured party. For injured parties, this makes it important to have their own legal representative to protect their own rights.
The Insurance Company Is All About Profits
We rely on the insurance companies to follow through with their policies and pay out when necessary to protect injured individuals. Unfortunately, there are times when insurance companies refuse to pay out the necessary compensation, making this difficult to navigate.
If they pay out, they’re not making profit. The profits are what they are most often considering when determining how much to pay to injury victims. This may mean settlements that are a lot less than what the victims deserve.
