More than 65,000 people are injured every year in Arizona car accidents, and one of the first steps that's taken when these situations arise is to file the appropriate insurance claims. Unfortunately, many of these situations lead to someone who has been harmed and who has a valid claim getting the runaround from an insurance company. Many of these problems and difficult situations could be avoided, however, if someone who has been injured in a crash obtains the help of a Phoenix car accident lawyer. Below are a few ways in which this form of help can make the insurance process easier.
When someone is injured and files a claim for coverage, there are a few common tactics that insurance companies will take if they do not want to pay a valid claim quickly. One such tactic is to provide a low-ball settlement offer that basically covers medical expenses and then all but refusing to offer something more reasonable until the injured person becomes nervous or desperate and takes what's available. Secondly, insurance companies have been known to delay the claims process until the injured person is forced to either accept a low offer or file an Arizona personal injury lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires.
When someone involves the help of a Phoenix personal injury attorney, however, this process can play out very differently. Insurance companies understand that an attorney knows how to negotiate settlements and that he or she will immediately recognize the common tactics used by these companies. Insurance company representatives also understand that if the situation moves to a certain point, there will be no hesitation in filing an Arizona personal injury lawsuit in order to protect the rights of the injured. Generally, insurance companies want to avoid the expense of defending litigation.
Therefore, if you or someone you love has been harmed in a crash and you're unsure of your prospects with an insurance company, take no chances and contact an auto accident lawyer at the Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.
