In a perfect world, accidents would not happen and insurance companies and large corporations would not plan strategies to avoid paying what they owe, or attempt to pay less than they should. However, accidents do happen, and insurance companies know how to defend and reduce the payment of claims. Therefore, it is very important to seek timely advice from an attorney following an accident, preferably before giving a recorded statement to the insurance company or signing any of their documents.
There is no dispute that insurance companies are in the business of making money. They train and pay their workers to look out for their interests, which generally speaking, is the complete opposite of your interests. Financial uncertainty and the legal process can cause stress. Stress is bad and prolonged stress is actually bad for your health and recovery from your injuries. We believe that the more you learn and understand about the system, the less stressful it can be.
