Should I Trust Automobile Insurance Companies?

Car Accident Compensation – Serving All of California

Absolutely not! Automobile Insurance companies are in the business to make money, they are not there to assist you. In order to avoid paying for the full extent and treatment of your personal injuries, insurance companies often try to settle quickly after an automobile accident, before the full extent of your injuries are apparent. The insurance companies are very sophisticated in how they go about setting up a claim, but their number one goal is to pay you as little as possible, and even nothing, if they can get away with that! If you try to go up against a large insurance company without knowing the system, you are not going to be treated fairly and you will not obtain the superior compensation you deserve. Don’t be one of their victims.

Dealing with insurance companies


If a negligent vehicle operator causes an injury but is not insured, he or she may be required to pay for the damages resulting from the accident they caused. However, if that person is covered by automobile liability insurance, his or her insurance company will be responsible for paying the damages that the injured person proves are caused by the accident based on available insurance. However, the automobile insurance companies fight injury cases vigorously because they want to avoid paying money to you. Unless the injured person can prove that the other driver was negligent, that negligence actually caused the accident, and that their injuries were caused by the accident, an insurance company will never pay. Even when liability for the accident is completely clear, automobile insurance companies very often dispute the amount of damages an injured person must prove – not only the amount of damages, but the extent of the damages as well.

Automobile insurance companies have extensive resources and will vigorously defend their financial interests in order to avoid paying fair compensation to accident victims. Often, these companies will offer a quick settlement in the hopes that the injured party will accept and forfeit their rights to further damages. Though it may seem like an appealing option if you have financial burdens as a result of your accident, such offers are often far less than what you are entitled to.
