Insurance companies use a number of unscrupulous tactics in order to deny a claim, reduce the potential value of a valid claim, or otherwise cause harm to your case.
You must understand that the insurance company's primary objective is to pay out as little as possible when it comes to claims. The adjuster's primary role is to either find a reason to deny a claim outright, or find some way to reduce the potential value of your claim (or reduce their liability).
Insurance companies know that this is a hectic and confusing time for you. Unfortunately, they use this to their advantage. The insurance company is not on your side when it comes to a personal injury claim; in fact, their goals are the exact opposite of yours. This is why personal injury attorneys exist—to advocate on behalf of you, the victim.
The moment you hire an attorney (and remember that a personal injury attorney will cost you nothing), you're now insulated from the insurance company. Your attorney will do the hard work (proving up damages, determining liability, preventing/deflecting any stalling tactics, negotiating a fair settlement, investigating claims, securing evidence, etc) while you focus on recovering from your injuries.
Some of the more common tactics the insurance company will use include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:
If you have been injured in an auto accident, remember that you don't have to go at this yourself. Aligning yourself with an experienced law firm is the smartest thing you can do, and will give you (by far) the best chance at a successful settlement or trial verdict.
Insurance companies fight these claims on a daily basis. They have a massive advantage over you. In order to have a fair fight, you need an advocate. You need someone equally as familiar with the claims process to fight for your rights.
