Dealing With Insurance Companies
Our Kansas City Injury Attorneys Can Fight for You
It would be great if insurance companies merely paid fair compensation.
This is definitely not the case, however. If you were injured in a vehicle
accident, you need to be paid the full amount necessary to handle:
- Medical bills
- Issues related to your inability to work
- Loss of compensation, now and future
- Pain and suffering
At our firm, take each case in hand and carefully manage every step of
We are very familiar with dealing with insurance companies and their representatives,
we know how they operate, and we know how to get a case paid fairly. Those
who try it on their own can expect to recover far less in compensation
than when we are managing a case. Why?
We know how insurance companies operate, we know the law, and they know we are trial lawyers and will take the
case to court if they do not come through with a fair settlement offer.
How Insurance Companies Operate
We are very familiar with how insurance companies operate. When a claim
is filed for damages after a
car accident, it goes through a specific process. Initially, the insurance company
adjuster will contact you and will try to find out the extent of your
injuries. You could be called or visited in person, and
there will be a request to gain access to your medical records - don't
agree to this! Although there is a rare case where an insurance company will make a fair
settlement offer, it is almost a certainty that the first offer they make
to you will be unfairly low.
Unfortunately, people who have suffered serious injuries in an auto accident
and are unable to work, or incapacitated, are also usually suffering financial
stress. They are bombarded with medical bills and may be struggling to
pay their regular bills. This is a situation that allows an insurance
company to offer a low settlement - and sometimes an unsuspecting victim
takes the offer. This can be a terrible mistake, as once you sign off
on the settlement, you cannot go back for more if your injuries have further
complications and require more treatment.
Managing a Car Accident Claim
We don't accept a low settlement offer. We know how insurance companies
try to pay out the minimum, and our goal is protect our clients' right
to full compensation. This means the negotiating process begins. This
is not just a discussion, although this is part of the process.
We submit full documentation to support the case. We have engaged in an evaluation of the losses you experienced, as well
as the estimated financial losses in the future that are the result of
the injuries you sustained.
This is a process that is extremely important to the final outcome of your
case. We also demand full compensation for pain and suffering, as well
as loss of quality of life. This can be an important issue in any case,
but particularly cases of permanent injuries, such as disfigurement, traumatic
brain injury, spinal cord injuries, severe internal injuries and others.
