Car Accident Insurance Claims
OCEAN SPRINGS CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
Motor vehicle travel is the most common method of transportation in the United States; Americans use motor vehicles to get to and from work, to drive their children to school, and to perform their daily activities more than any other mode of transportation because of a vehicle’s unprecedented degree of mobility. Yet, for all the advantages of owning and using a personal vehicle, auto accidents are the leading cause of death for age 4 and every age 11 through 27 according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA).
With the widespread incidence of auto accidents, and with the economic impact costing $70 billion in 2005 alone per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), auto insurance carriers nationwide do everything within their power to cut their losses and maximize their profits, all to the disadvantage of injured car accident victims and their families.
INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE FOR-PROFIT COMPANIES
Auto insurance is expensive, but despite paying hefty premiums, drivers are often surprised to find out just how hard it is to receive fair compensation after an accident. When you’re involved in an accident, it’s very important that you receive the necessary compensation to cover all of your economic and noneconomic losses from the insurance company. In theory, the insurance company would cover all of your property damage or replace your car, pay all of your medical bills and compensate you for your pain and suffering, but it’s not that simple.
Auto insurance companies are for-profit companies that are focused on their bottom line, not yours. Whether you’re filing an insurance claim with the at-fault driver’s policy or if you’re filing an uninsured motorist claim under your own policy, you can expect that the insurance adjuster will offer you a low-dollar settlement that won’t cover all your losses, or they will attempt to deny your claim altogether.
If you accept a low dollar settlement offer, you could wind up shouldering the remaining uncovered expenses, which could add up to thousands or tens of thousands of dollars; don’t let this happen to you.
