The Tricks Insurance Companies Play
Insurance is a trillion-dollar industry and these companies did not get there by paying out insurance claims to their customers. The insurance companies spend millions of dollars on advertising—all to make policy holders and potential customers feel that they can rely on that company. They use catchy slogans and interesting spokespeople, but what they don’t tell you in those ads is that they will be your friend only until you want to collect on that policy you have been paying into.
If their ads are not enough to dissuade individuals from seeking compensation for their accident the insurance company will then employ tactics aimed at limiting or denying your claim. They will try to convince you to take a settlement early on that is much less than what you deserve or they will simply lie and say you have no claim. Should your case reach trial, the insurance company will then hire an expensive legal team and will aggressively fight your claim, even if it means they are spending more in legal fees than what they owe you. They don’t mind spending that extra money because it will only further their cause of making sure people do not pursue claims. They make sure that others are aware at how difficult they make the process, thus intimidating the claimholder into believing they cannot win their claim.
