Perhaps the most common cliche that Los Angeles attorneys use is to say that they’re “on your side.” The idea is that this law firm is on your side when no one else is. Too often, attorneys say that they’re on your side, but in the end, they take actions that prove the only side they’re on is their own. Here at the LA Injury Group, we make sure to put you with a Los Angeles personal injury attorney who is really and truly on your side, who always answers your calls promptly, and can provide you with the kind of representation that you deserve.
When people think of groups that are “on their side,” one they might think of is the insurance company. After all, this makes a kind of sense: you’ve been paying insurance companies for much of your life, so it’s natural to think that they’re on your side once you’ve been injured in some kind of accident. However, unfortunately, the opposite is true: the insurance company is on their side. Namely, they’re on the side of “making as much money as possible for the insurance company while giving as little as possible to the people who have been injured.”
One way they do this is through the insurance adjuster. When the adjuster talks to you after you’ve been hurt in an accident, they might seem like the best friend you’ve ever had. They will be friendly, warm, and want to ask you all kinds of questions to see how you’re doing. This is a rouse. It may seem human and genuine, but it’s actually the opposite: they want to get you to say something on the record that can be used against you in your case.
Perhaps the worst of their techniques is that they might try to get you to take an offer for less than your claim is worth. Insurance companies have, for the most part, been in this business for years. So, they have a very clear idea as to what every single claim is worth. That means that they know if they get you to take less for your claim than what you deserve. Then they’ll have made money off of you. When they offer that first deal, it probably isn’t worth it.
One clear way we can do so: by making it so that you don’t have to deal with the insurance company. Once you’ve signed with us, you’re done with having to deal with them. Instead, when they reach out to you, you can direct them to us. This can be done for forms and documents, too. That’s why we always tell prospective clients: when the insurance company offers you something, let us know first. Then, we can let you know if it’s a good idea or not.
Often, that comes up in the context of that initial offer from the insurance company. Perhaps you are the one in several million, the first person that the insurance company is actually going to make a great offer to before you secure legal representation. But, the odds on that are not good. In all likelihood, all the insurance company is trying to do is pay you off, giving you a little bit of money. To make you feel good so that they don’t have to worry about paying you more money later on. We can make sure that you get the money you deserve.
