Dealing with Insurance Companies and Adjusters

As an attorney, I am always keenly interested in listening to the opposing side advocate their position(s) and the logic that drives their position.  Often times, my opposition has sound arguments and valid points that are commonly applied and accepted.  Other times however, I face adversaries who take outrageous positions, apply illogic reasoning and argue, not in order to advocate a position they believe in, but rather, argue because they can.

These arguments are made everyday by insurance companies, insurance adjusters and lawyers who work for insurance companies, who choose to treat every injured victim in California unfairly.  What prompted me to write this short segment was a study that AAA put out regarding the cost of accidents on Society.

  • State Farm, Allstate employ consultant’s strategy, CNN research finds
  • Theme of strategy is “deny, delay, defend,” former employee says
  • Companies convince juries that claims are fraudulent
  • Insurers, institute deny treating claimants unfairly

 

How about the cost on society that is driven by insurance companies who fail to properly assist those in need of medical care?  Auto Repairs?  Past and Future Medical Bills?  How about the insurance companies’ inherent practice of bad faith and unfair dealings with injured clients?

Is this news to anybody?  I didn’t think so.

These trillion dollar corporations like All State, State Farm, Progressive, GEICO, AAA, Mercury, AIG, Nationwide, 21st Century and the many other auto insurance companies profit from our use of their service, and are more interested in the bottom line rather than the individuals they claim to serve.

Regardless of the injuries you may have suffered in a car accident, motorcycle accident or any other type of accident, you will undoubtedly be faced with extreme difficulty in dealing with any of the insurance companies in this State.

Today, especially in Los Angeles, an auto accident victim who has suffered injuries, has had their car damaged or totaled, has needed medical treatment of various degrees, will have an extremely difficult time getting even their medical bills paid for without hiring a lawyer and filing a lawsuit first.  Insurance companies recognize that they can “deny, defend and delay” every single car accident claim and force injured through the long and arduous process of litigation in hopes of deterring or diminishing the amount of their “profits” they will pay out.

I will continue to fight the good fight.
