Being hurt in a vehicle wreck can leave Pasadena TX accident victims feeling completely overwhelmed. Not only do they have to deal with the pain and horror of the crash itself, but they then have the pick up the pieces of their life and try to make everything ‘normal’ again. As if this weren’t enough to deal with, many Pasadena TX crash victims then find themselves fighting with the insurance company for a fair settlement. How is this fair?
Insurance companies do NOT fight fair – you MUST KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
Even when it is clear who is at fault in your Pasadena car, truck, motorcycle, 18-wheeler or bus crash the insurance company will STILL fight and play all their dirty tricks to try and avoid paying you fair compensation. What are some things they will try?
- The insurance adjuster is trained to be very nice and sympathetic to you, so you think they are on your side – which gives the adjuster leverage. Don’t trust them!
- The insurance company will ask you to give them authorization to access your medical records – so they can go hunting through your past medical history for something to use against you!
- Deny, deny, deny! The insurance company will find ways to deny your claim, hoping you’ll just give up and go away.
- Delay, delay, delay! They’ll also delay offering you a settlement, with hopes that the statute of limitations will run out on your case and you’ll have no legal recourse – and they win!
- After all this, they’ll offer you a small settlement hoping you’ll be so desperate for ANY money that you’ll just take it and leave them alone.
There are more tricks, but these are the big ones. Now that you’ve read this list, we hope you realize that the insurance company is NOT on your side and you are NOT in good hands with them!
