Insurance Company Tactics

Why is it taking so long to settle my claim?  Why won’t the insurance company believe my doctors? Why do I have to go through a medical exam? Why is my deposition taking so long? Why do they keep trying to continue court? Why are they saying I’m at fault when I’m not?

A dog didn’t cause the wreck. That’s insane. I was there. I remember. 

Injured folks everywhere ask these questions.

We know why. We’ve been there.

Insurance companies make massive profits by: delaying, denying, and defending. Claims centers are now profit centers.

“An insurance company can make a lot of money on the small claims,” said Jay Feinman, a professor at Rutgers University School of Law, “because if you save a few dollars on a huge number of claims, it’s worth more than saving a lot of dollars on a very small number of claims.” Link. 

These tactics are so prevalent in Connecticut that we have strategies to deal with them. For example, with some insurers we file suit immediately. We know they won’t pay reasonable value until the time of trial. No need to wait a year to file suit. That wait year is a wasted year. Best to push the case forward.

Our job is to help you take control. We help you fight back.
