Underhanded Strategies from the Insurance Company
Most claims are paid by insurance companies. But please understand that despite their commercial claims, insurance companies are your adversary during an injury claim—not your friend. Following is a description of a few of the many tricks they have up their sleeves.
- Lowball settlement offers: Offering you a pittance at a time when you face heavy medical bills.
- Comparative fault: Trying to place part of the blame for the accident on you, to save themselves money.
- Social media: Sneaking onto your social media accounts looking for something they can use against you.
- Trick questions: Talk to your lawyer before you answer any questions posed by the insurance company.
- “Fishing expeditions”: Tricking you into giving them permission to review all of your medical records looking for a “pre-existing condition” that they can blame your injuries on (instead of the accident).
But the good news is that we know all of their tricks, and they aren’t going to fool us. In fact, our reputation precedes us and most insurance companies know better than to even try to pull these stunts once a client hires us.
As experienced Vail personal injury lawyers, we maintain relationships with experts who can reconstruct your accident. These experts use evidence ranging from eyewitness testimony to skid marks on the road. Depending on the nature of your claim, we can arrange for expert medical witnesses and scientific witnesses to support your claim both in and out of court.
Empty Pockets? Fear Not, Because You Don’t Need a Dime to Retain Us
Winning claims is what we do, and we are successful almost all of the time. So often, in fact, that we promise not to charge you a dime in legal fees unless we win your claim. You won’t owe us anything until and unless the defendant actually pays your claim. When that happens, our legal fees are deducted from the amount you won. Ultimately it is the opposing party that pays your legal fees, not you.
You Need to Move Quickly
Your best chance of winning could expire much earlier than the expiration of the statute of limitations period. Physical evidence can deteriorate, witnesses can die or move away, and memories become fuzzy over time.
The best time for you to act is now! The longer we have to prepare your claim, the better your chances of winning. It’s not just a matter of winning or losing. Even if you do win, how much money will you win? Will it equal the true value of your claim? We’re here to make sure that it does.
