Why You Need Experienced Trial Attorneys To Protect You From Insurance Companies

Short of the IRS, your insurance company is probably one of the organizations that you would least like to have to deal with in court.

Unfortunately, many personal injury cases and even wrongful death cases will require you to go “toe to toe” with insurance firms — both your own and those representing other parties.

Lawyers for insurance companies often believe that they can get plaintiffs to agree to relatively minor settlements.

However, you should be wary of any early settlement offers, especially if:

  • You have ongoing health problems as a result of an accident, especially back or neck issues.
  • You have sustained traumatic brain injury that will require ongoing care on a permanent basis.
  • You have had to miss work or have lost other opportunities as a direct result of an injury.
  • You have suffered emotional pain and suffering in addition to physical discomfort.
  • There are other complicating factors in your case that you are not entirely sure about.

Insurance Companies Can Talk Tough, But Are Scared To Death Of One Factor

In a personal injury case, there are — broadly speaking — two different kinds of damages that can be awarded to the plaintiff. One of these is directly related to your expenses, such as medical expenses, that are absorbed as a result of the accident.

The other kind of damage is referred to as “punitive damages,” and they are critical.

Just as the name implies, punitive damages are leveled against the responsible party in a case in order to incentivize better behavior — in other words, as a “don’t do it again.”

Generally speaking, if your accident has been caused by a business, that business may suffer major punitive damages if your case is successfully argued in court.

Believe it or not, however, even insurance companies can theoretically be subject to punitive damages if they aggressively fight a claim to the detriment of someone’s health. Plus, the bad press can be potent.

The Big Insurance Secret: They’re As Worried About A Long Trial As You Might Be

You don’t want to have to deal with a long trial — you want to get the money to which you might be entitled and work on rebuilding your life after your injury.

The best way to shorten the process is to partner with trial attorneys who can cut through the mystique and misdirection sometimes employed by insurance firms.

When insurance companies understand that they are facing tough, tenacious attorneys on the plaintiff’s side, they are more likely to truncate the legal process with an offer that will be more in keeping with your needs.

In some cases, in fact, it’s possible to go through this entire process, get the claim to which you are entitled, and ensure that the cost of your insurance does not even go up as a result.

You have more leverage than you might realize when working with the insurance companies — but only a trial attorney can unlock it for you.
