Common Insurance Tactics

Available Weekends & After Hours

What are the most common insurance tactics, of which I should be aware?

All insurance companies are in the business of making money. To do this, they have to collect more money in premiums than they pay out in claims.

Every time you make a claim to your insurance company, an adjuster assesses the nature of your claim and decides whether to pay it based on the company’s rules. Unscrupulous insurance claims adjusters may try to apply irrelevant rules to your claim or mis-categorize your claim in an effort to reduce the amount of your settlement.

Other ways that your insurance company may try to get out of paying your claim include:

  • Asking for a recorded statement that will be used against you later
  • Asking you to sign vague “authorizations”
  • Offering you a fast settlement that is far below the amount you could get in court
  • Refusing to pay your medical bills
  • Showing unwillingness to agree to a settlement

One of the best ways to protect yourself against commonly used insurance tactics, is to hire an experienced attorney who specializes in Personal Injury Claims.
