How Auto Insurance Companies Try To Devalue Valid Claims

Big auto insurance companies spend millions of dollars on television and online advertisements portraying themselves as caring and helpful whenever somebody gets hurt in an accident. In reality, insurance companies are out there to make money for themselves. When someone makes a claim on a customer’s policy, the insurance adjuster will often search for excuses to deny it.

For example, it’s not uncommon for the insurance company to accuse you of faking or exaggerating your injuries or claiming that it was a preexisting condition you had before the crash. Fortunately, you don’t have to accept an unjust claim denial or lowball settlement offer. Our attorneys have more than 20 years of experience representing car accident victims in North Carolina. They know all the insurance industry’s tricks and how to counter them with the facts and the law.

Car Accident Questions And Answers

Car accidents often leave victims with more questions than answers. To help the North Carolina community through such a confusing event, we at the Law Office of W. Daniel Grist, PLLC, can provide answers to some critical questions about car accidents.

What should I do after a car accident?

After an accident, it’s important to remain calm. Take as many photos as you can, including any injuries or damage to your vehicle. You’ll also want to exchange information with anyone else involved in the accident. It might be helpful to write down anything that happened so you can remember it later.

It is also important to contact your insurance company. However, remember that they can deny your claim. These companies are notoriously difficult, and we can help you fight for what you are entitled to. Don’t face this alone.

Can I lose my compensation if I was not wearing a seatbelt?

Each state has its own laws regarding how wearing a seatbelt can impact the chances of a victim’s compensation. In North Carolina, no law says a victim cannot collect compensation if they were not wearing a seatbelt.

Do I need to see a doctor?

Even if you do not feel hurt after a car accident, you should see a doctor. A doctor can confirm if you received any hidden injuries, and they can provide a report that confirms your condition after an accident, which can help your personal injury claim.

Should I talk to the other party’s insurance?

Sometimes, the at-fault driver’s insurance may try to reach out to you with questions about the accident. They may say that they are looking to confirm information or that they are trying to confirm their liability. It is more likely that they are trying to find ways to pin liability on you, so avoid speaking to the other party without an attorney, if possible.

Do I need a lawyer?

Without an experienced personal injury attorney to help you, you may lose out on maximizing your compensation. Saying the wrong thing to the wrong person can cost you some or all of your compensation. If you do not know your injury’s total value, you may also accept a settlement that is far less than you deserve.
