3 Reasons Why You Should Not Trust Insurance Companies
Insurance companies are often seen as a necessary evil. They provide us with the financial protection we need in the event of an accident or injury, but they can also be difficult to deal with. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize just how untrustworthy insurance companies can be. In this article, we discuss the top three reasons why you should not trust insurance companies.
If you ever feel like an insurance company is trying to take advantage of you, please do not hesitate to reach out to our insurance lawyers at (713) 224-7800.
1. They Are Motivated by Profit:
Insurance companies are businesses, and like any other business, they are motivated by profit. This means that they will often try to minimize the amount of money they pay out in claims. They may try to deny or delay your claim, or offer you a settlement that is far lower than what you deserve. They delay the process to make you impatient in hopes that you will take a lower settlement later on. To prevent this, you should seek counsel from a law firm VB Attorneys. Our goal is to get you the money you deserve in a timely manner.
2. They Are Not Always Honest:
Insurance companies are not always honest with their customers. They may try to downplay the severity of an injury or accident, or they may try to blame the victim for the incident. They may also try to pressure you into accepting a settlement that is far lower than what you deserve. We see this all of the time, especially when it comes to personal injuries. Here is an example where VB's own, Brain Beckcom, stands up to one of the "specialists" that an insurer had brought in to downplay a customer's wounds.
3. They May Not Have Your Best Interests In Mind:
Beware that insurance firms may not have your back - they employ numerous lawyers to challenge and weaken your case. Please do not be fooled into thinking that you can handle this on your own; seeking legal advice in this situation can only prove beneficial for you despite what the insurance company may suggest. It is possible that they will attempt to discourage you from seeking legal advice by claiming that the situation is straightforward, an attorney will only waste your money, or that hiring one will prolong the process. It's just for their own convenience, don't let them fool you.
