When most people are in a car accident, they trust that the property damage and medical bills incurred will be taken care of by insurance. In most cases, this is exactly what happens. But when the injuries are serious, and the medical bills accumulate, there is potential for the system to break down leaving car accident victims with all kinds of questions.
If you're in this situation, wondering why the insurance industry is denying some or all of your car insurance claim, the first thing to understand is that an insurance company is a business. As a business, the only thing that matters is to turn a profit. In some cases, insurance companies have policies in place to automatically deny large claims to protect their own bottom line. How can this happen? How do they get away with such actions? These and many other basic questions are often the first asked when consulting an attorney for the first time.
Common Car Accident Victim Questions
Q: I was in a Denver car accident that was the other driver's fault, but the insurance company denied my claim. What can I do?
A: If you believe that your insurance claim was valid, then you may need to let them know that you understand your rights and will not be intimidated. When insurance companies deny claims, they are often depending on you NOT to understand your rights. They are hoping that you will accept their decision without question. In many cases, the tone of the insurance company changes very quickly when they speak with a Denver car accident attorney. This lets them know that you are going to fight for the full, fair value of your car insurance claim.
Q: How can a Denver car accident attorney help?
A: There are several things that an attorney can do to help you with your car accident claim. In some cases, simply knowing that you are going to protect your rights signals to the insurance company that the old trick of denying your claim won't work. However, in many cases, they will still try to offer the smallest possible settlement. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, including future medical bills, and for lost wages from the missed time at work while you recover. In order to maximize the settlement that you receive from the insurance company, contact a Colorado car accident lawyer today.
