If you’ve filed an accident claim with an insurance company, unfortunately, sometimes unscrupulous adjusters may try to unfairly delay your claim. An Orange County injury attorney can help you recognize and prevent unfair delays or denials.
Common Tricks Adjusters Use to Delay Paying Injury Claims
As your Orange County injury attorney can advise, claims delayed means claims denied. An experienced Orange County injury lawyer understands some of more common tricks used which may include:
- Refusing to pay for automobile repairs until you agree to an unfairly low bodily injury claim;
- Forcing you to use your own medical insurance when your or the at-fault driver’s car insurance should pay for medical bills; and
- Taking advantage of low income claimants who desperately need their settlement check to pay for basic living expenses.
