Myth: Insurance Companies Will Work with You to Find the Best Compensation Package
Insurance adjusters are often nice. They often make you feel as though they are there to help but the truth is far from that. The truth is that they work for the insurance company and the insurance company has one responsibility: Making as much money as possible for their shareholders. The insurance company is not on your side and they are not going to simply offer the best possible package for your case.
Myth: You Cannot Settle Your Case Until You Have Provided a Recorded Statement to the Insurance Company
No. Do not make a recorded statement – or any statement for that matter – until you have talked to your attorney. The insurance company is very likely to make it seem as though you are required to make a recorded statement but this is false – you are not required to do so. It is to their benefit to record your statement so that they can use against you any tiny discrepancies from one statement to another.
Myth: The At-Fault Party’s Insurance Company Must Pay Your Medical Bills Immediately
False. Until you win your case or accept a settlement, they are not obligated to pay anything. This is one of the tactics that insurance companies use to pay much less than they should – they assure victims that if they simply settle, they will get their bills paid. The good news is that many medical professionals will offer treatment in exchange for a lien against your case.
