How the insurance adjuster processes your injury claim. After you are injured in Arizona you will receive a phone call from the liability insurance company. Often they will offer a very low settlement to resolve the claim. If you accept this offer your case is over, and you may not demand any further monies. If you deny the offer and begin negotiations for a better settlement, you may be in for a long, aggravating ride. Personal injury lawyers are in business because dealing with an insurance adjuster during the negotiation of your settlement can be frustrating. Adjusters will fail to return phone calls, delay your claim, require you to make statements, request you sign documentation, demand your medical history even when unrelated to the claim, and ask that you go to their own physicians. They intentionally utilize these strategies in order to induce a quick settlement in their favor. In other words to get you to agree to a low offer. You are not obligated to play into their hand. It is always wise to consult with an experienced Arizona personal injury lawyer prior to engaging in negotiations with the liability insurance company. The injury attorneys at Mostafavi, Marco & Wimmer provide free consultations to help injury victims settle their own claims. If unsuccessful, we will take your case at a discounted fee to ensure the maximum settlement for you possible.
Arizona Personal Injury-Insurance companies not playing moneyball. We have noticed a recent trend in Arizona Personal Injury Law. A quite illogical and wholly unfair practice by the insurance companies that ultimately is against the best interest of the insurance company and of the Arizona injury client . You do not have to be a Phoenix Arizona Personal Injury Lawyer to understand this dilemma. Quite honestly, a 3rd grader could tell you that the recent trend is completely illogical. In the past insurance companies would offer fair settlements for Arizona Personal Injury cases, covering not only the medical bills and costs of the client, but also give the injured a little something extra for their pain and suffering/loss of enjoyment of life. Those who have unfortunately been involved in an injury case understand that along with the pain and medical bills comes time off work/school, trips to the physical therapist, insomnia, and emotional distress that can negatively impact interpersonal relationships. These fair settlements saved all parties involved time and money, by foregoing the need to litigate. Recently, insurance companies have been far more aggressive, often offering Arizona Personal Injury Clients less their total medical bills. This means that the injured would not get all their bills paid and get nothing for pain and suffering/loss of enjoyment of life. This forces the Arizona Personal Injury Lawyer to file a lawsuit and litigate. This increases costs for the insurance company, and often times results in an ultimate fair settlement. Why the insurance companies would rather litigate than make a fair offer up front, that they would settle for in litigation anyway, is beyond me. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident you will likely get a call from the insurance company offering you a very low settlement. DO NOT ACCEPT IT!!
