Don’t Fall for These Insurance Company Tricks on Your Personal Injury Case
The fact of the matter is that insurance adjusters are always going to be nice to your face or on the phone. It’s part of their job, and many of them are decent people. However, another part of their job is to pay out as little as possible so that the insurance company is profitable.
Therefore, you can’t trust an insurance company to make you a fair offer. Here are a few tricks an insurance company may use to reduce how much they pay out.
- Delays – If the insurance company stalls, you may see the medical bills and other expenses increase and become desperate. Then you will be tempted to accept a lower settlement. Remember that delaying tactics and low first offers are all part of the game insurance companies play to hold onto their money.
- Requests – If the insurance company is asking you to do things that seem like their job, you’re probably right. The idea is to make things so difficult on the person trying to make a claim that a percentage of people will just give up. Every payout that doesn’t happen is a big win for the insurance company.
- Pressure – Telling you this is the only offer you are going to get, it’s a good offer, they are taking care of you, and you’ll end up with nothing if you don’t sign this right now are high-pressure tactics to make you take less than you deserve.
