Common Defense Tactics Insurance Companies Use Against You

Insurance companies are not looking out for your best interest. Don’t be fooled by an  adjuster’s pleasant voice or seeming concern for your injury. You need to remember that  these are highly trained individuals, and their employer is the insurance company, not  you. Their primary goal is to save the insurance company money by any means  necessary. Over the course of my career, I have seen many different defense tactics used  by insurance companies. You need to know what matters to the defense and how they  will use it against your case. In this blog post, I will list and discuss some of the most  common defense tactics that insurance companies will use against you.  

No Medical Treatment: The three factors in a personal injury case our liability, causation, and damages. Without damages, there is no case. If you were not injured and you are  cleared by a doctor, consider yourself lucky, this type of case can usually be settled rather quickly. If you are injured, make sure you get all the medical treatment necessary to  recover or recover as best as possible. Your number one priority should be to recover  from your injuries. Some people think that just giving it time will cause an injury to go  away, that couldn’t be further from the truth. If you are injured, seek immediate medical  attention. 

Gaps in Medical Treatment: One of the most common defense tactics is to make the  argument that the injury victim had gaps in medical treatment. This is a way of indicating  that your injuries weren’t that serious. In some cases, they may claim that you took too  long after the accident to get treatment. Unfortunately, most people won’t go to get  checked out by a doctor until they absolutely have no choice.  

Inconsistent Statements: Inconsistent statements can be killers. Remember, anything  you say can and will be used against you. This applies to anything you tell the insurance  adjuster at any point in your claim, anything you tell your doctor, and anything you tell the  person who harmed you. This comes into play when the insurance adjuster request a  recorded statement and you leave out a detail you later remember it also comes in to play  with your medical records.  

Missing Witnesses and Evidence: If your injury is minor, then you can generally gather  all the evidence necessary; however, if you or a loved one is involved in a serious wreck  or life changing event other than a crash, trial lawyers can help preserve the evidence.
