Don’t become a victim of your insurance company. We shares different scenarios as to why your insurance company isn’t paying you what you deserve and how to rectify the situation.
Q: My case is simple; why won’t the insurance company pay me?
A: Insurance companies come up with different reasons to dispute and fight the claims. A lot of times, even in a case where fault to you seems clear, they investigate and dispute or argue liability. They try to say that the accident is your fault or partially your fault and in most cases then, they try to reduce what they want to pay you by the percentage that they think you are at fault.
That’s why it is important to have an attorney who can investigate and get evidence to prove that the insurance company is wrong. The other thing that comes up often is insurance companies try to fight how much of your medical bills are related to the accident. A lot of times they will agree that the emergency room visit is related, but they will try to fight anything after the emergency room visit and there are a lot of reasons for that. Sometimes it’s based on the fact that it’s their perception that you waited too long to get treatment and oftentimes it’s because they try to blame an injury that you had in the past aggravating your new injury or injuries. All of these are reasons why it’s important to speak with an attorney with experience who can consult with you and figure out the best way to get evidence to prove your case and get you compensated fully for your medical bills, your lost wages, and your pain and suffering.
