When someone else injures you, a representative of their insurance provider is almost guaranteed to be among the first to contact you. If you have any hope or plans to receive compensation to cover the costs of your injuries, you’ll be smart by not taking their call.
Their quick attempt to reach you is not to provide help.
Instead, they’re trying to get to you before you have time to be seen by a doctor, think about your accident or retain the services of a personal injury lawyer.
Regardless of their soothing commercial catchphrases of being “a good neighbor” or “the good hands people,” insurance providers are in business for one thing only: to make as much money as possible.
They do this through two main ways: (1) collecting insurance premiums, and (2) paying either nothing or as little as possible on claims.
Keep in mind that collectively, insurance companies in the U.S. routinely take in well over $1 trillion in premiums each year. With nearly $4 trillion in assets, the companies have a lot of resources at their call as they try to convince injured people not to pursue the full amount of what they’re owed in compensation.
A big weapon insurance adjustors have is their personality. They appear engaging, friendly and even concerned about your health and well-being.
They’re the main goal, though, is to get you to settle for as little money and as quickly as possible.
Some insurance companies provide in-house corporate training for how to avoid payouts for injuries and prizes to those insurance reps who deny the most claims.
Trust us, there are many more “games of deception” used by insurance adjustors. These are merely the most common ones that are used to delay acting on your claim or simply denying it.
There’s simply too much at risk to justify trying to take on the insurance adjusters on your own. They speak their own industry language, and they definitely do not represent your best interests.
