Can an Insurance Company Legally Deny My Legitimate Car Accident Claim?
Our Glen Larson Law personal injury attorneys in Austin have dedicated over 15 years to representing injured victims throughout Texas, and we are committed to providing legal solutions our clients can count on for the next 15 years.
That means we often have conversations with injury victims who are unsure if they want to “sue” the person or entity that caused their vehicle collision or injuries.
Most people believe that the insurance company will do the right thing especially when it is clear there was a negligent party at fault.
Unfortunately, handling your claim yourself can often mean your legitimate accident and injury claim is undervalued, denied, or frustratingly delayed.
Is this fair? No. Is it true? Absolutely.
After you have filed a claim, whether it has been significantly undervalued or outright denied, it is difficult to go backward and present the evidence necessary to prove your case. The insurance company will fight and remain steadfast in their decision that you do not deserve the financial recovery you actually need for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses that were incurred because of the accident.
That is where Glen Larson Law Injury Attorneys can help.
Our experienced team of Austin personal injury attorneys will ensure the evidence, supporting documentation, and your recovery needs are included in our demands to the insurance company, and we will negotiate on your behalf so you can get your life back on track.
Our legal team pursues dedicated, driven results for our clients. There is never a charge to talk to an attorney. We stand ready to help you. Call 512-883-0277 today.
Why Would the At-Fault Party’s Insurance Company Deny My Personal Injury Claim?
According to the Insurance Information Institute, the U.S. insurance industry’s net premiums totaled $1.28 trillion last year alone, and the insurance companies do not easily part with their profits because of their policyholders’ negligence.
They use manipulative tactics, insurance jargon, and confusing legal terms to make the process more complex than it should be. Unfortunately, when they are talking to an injury victim directly, they often succeed and don’t pay as much as they should.
Some of the tactics they use to undervalue and deny claims include, but are not limited to:
- Requiring a complete police report from the accident scene that points to their client’s involvement. Without it, they will simply state their policyholder said it was not his or her fault, and that is where it will end.
- Stating you did not seek medical attention immediately after the accident, suggesting the injuries you suffered were not serious enough to warrant a personal injury claim or were not caused by the accident in question.
- Requesting a recorded statement from the injured person before they can consult with an attorney, thereby manipulating the individual into taking some fault for the collision.
The insurance company will not give up on trying to disprove the injured person’s version of the accident, and the above tactics are only the start of manipulating the claim in their favor.
We can help take the pressure off you by routing insurance company communication through our office, so you can focus on your well-being while we handle the details of your case.
