Just like clockwork, shortly after I file suit on personal injury cases, I get a call or email from the insurance defense lawyer. They always have the same question: Do you really want to try this case?
Judging from my lawsuit, isn't that a given? I guess not.
This time however, after I gave him my valuation of the case, he candidly replied that the insurance company "wanted" him to try more cases.
What an odd thing to say. But after thinking for a moment, it's not odd at all when one realizes the true nature of insurance companies. They are relentless bullies, and they want you to know it.
What's more is that there is a symbiotic relationship between insurance defense lawyers and insurance companies. By trying "a lot" of cases, insurance companies cement their dominance and insurance defense lawyers continue to line their own pockets.
It's never an even playing field fighting a personal injury case. Insurance companies have the advantage of almost unlimited financial resources, but more often than not, people choose to fight insurance companies on their own, without the help of an attorney.
Most parents don't even have the patience to deal with their own kids- how on earth will they have the patience to deal with an insurance adjuster, or much worse, an insurance defense lawyer, who is incentivized to fight them?
Even when an injured claimant finally gets justice for their injury, the insurance company has benefited by not paying out this debt for several years. Often times, this is their strategy. Who wouldn't like to take out an interest-free loan for years?
Don't go at it alone, we can help.
