An Experienced Car Accident Lawyer Can Protect Your Insurance Rights With Your Insurance Company
Though it is common practice for insurance companies to try to diminish, delay or deny a claim, it often comes as a surprise to policyholders. You may have a great relationship with your agent, so you expect that your claim will be processed and paid quickly. Unfortunately, the claim will not be reviewed by your agent, but by adjusters who are hired to minimize the amount of money insurers have to pay out on claims.
Mr. Smith is a strong advocate, and experienced car accident lawyer, fighting for clients with insurance companies. In more than three decades in practice, we have seen all the strategies and tactics insurers use to try to challenge your claim. We take an aggressive stance, based on our extensive knowledge of insurance law and insurance policies. We won’t let insurance companies try to confuse you with convoluted explanations about the denial of coverage.
One of the ways your insurance company can minimize your claim is simply by neglecting to tell you about all the benefits to which you are entitled. You may have PIP (personal injury protection) coverage, which will allow you to recover money for lost wages and medical expenses, even if another party is at fault. There may be covered in your own policy to provide compensation when the at-fault party either has no insurance or is underinsured. We will carefully review your policy and make certain that you obtain all benefits available to you.

When you have been hurt in a car accident, one of the most difficult tasks you face can be getting the benefits you have paid for and to which you are entitled from your insurance company. For most people, the first place you go after a car accident is to your insurance provider. Unfortunately, your insurer has a vested interest in paying as little as possible to settle your claim. Instead of honoring your claim, the insurer will most likely engage in delaying tactics, frequently offering you less than your claim is worth or denying your claim altogether. You want an experienced lawyer to help protect your rights.
