When you’re injured in an accident or in some other event which is the fault of someone else, it’s a lonely feeling. Even if you’re surrounded by your loved ones, by those who truly and deeply care for you, the recovery process can be difficult. That is especially true at the time of this writing, during the COVID-19 pandemic. So many of us are staying inside, doing our part to flatten the curve, to stop the spread of the virus. During this time and any other, a personal injury attorney Los Angeles from the LA Injury Group, the best personal injury law firm is ready to help.
When an adjuster from an insurance company comes to talk to you, it can seem like the best thing in the world. You’ve just been in an accident, you’re wounded, healing, and vulnerable. Then, this incredibly friendly new person comes into your life, offering money and hope. In the wake of an accident, it can seem like the first good thing to happen in a while. The truth is, unfortunately, that it isn’t.
Someone from the insurance company is exactly that: from the insurance company. So, whatever they say to you, it’s not really them talking - it’s the insurance company. This may sound harsh, but it’s the kind of thing that you have to keep in mind when talking to an adjuster or some other emissary of an insurance company.
The goal of the insurance company is not to get your money. It is not to make sure that you’re healthy, that you’re able to pay for all of your medical bills, that you’re able to get back on your feet, financially, and perhaps literally. The insurance company’s goal is to make money for the insurance company. If giving you money, if helping you does not help the insurance company to make money, then… well, you can see where this is going.
When someone from the insurance company offers you money, they know that it’s less than what your claim is worth. They’re well aware that the amount of money you’re being offered, no matter how large to you, is actually much smaller than the true worth of your claim. Of course, the phrase “your claim” always sounds a bit reductive, when really it could mean “your pain, your life, your experience,” and so forth.
See, if the insurance company gets you to sign for less than your claim is worth, they win. By “win” we mean that they make money, perhaps quite a bit of it. The money that you will receive is so much less than you could have had you gone with an attorney. Or, alternatively, if you had gone with an attorney that has the experience, resources, and more to make an insurance company come to the table and stay there until you got the compensation that you deserve.
If you go back a few paragraphs in this blog, you’ll see that part where we mentioned how an insurance company’s goal is not to make sure that you can pay your bills, get back on your feet, get your due compensation, and so forth. That, instead, is the goal of our law firm. We want you to get back on your feet. We want you to get as much money as you deserve. Moreover, we’re willing to do what it takes to make that happen.
As a law firm, we only make money if we win money for you. So, our goals align entirely with yours. We know everything that you’ve been through, we know what your claim is really worth, and we don’t stop until you get exactly that which you deserve. That’s true from the initial consultation, through the investigation, negotiation, as well as courtroom and even appeal if necessary.
