Games of the Insurance Industry
Following your accident, you turn to the insurance company to receive the money you need to afford the financial burdens that arise from an injury. This is met with the quick response of the company that you do not have a claim or that it is worth very little, but this is not true. The insurance industry consistently employs tactics aimed at limiting or denying your claim in order for them to be more profitable.
When you pay your premiums to the insurance company, they then take that money and invest it in order to make of a profit—this is called float. The company wants to keep that float for as long as possible because the longer it is invested the larger profit they can make from it. In order to do this, they deceive their policyholders into thinking a number of things: The first thing they want you to believe is that it is too hard to make a claim. Those who actually file a claim are quickly met with the delaying and denying tactics and the hope is that if people see how hard it is to recover those funds that they won’t even bother. Of course then there are those who do seek the money that is rightfully theirs and the company may offer an immediate settlement that is far less than what the accident merits. Should the claim make it to trial, they spare no expense on an expansive legal team who then aggressively fights the claim in any way possible in order to dispute the case.
