When you are injured or ill and are dealing with insurance companies as a result, it’s difficult to know whether or not you are being treated fairly.
After all, insurance companies are in business to make a profit, not pay claims. They’re not on your side, and they’re not looking out for your interests. How do insurance companies work to pay as little as possible or nothing at all on your claim?
- They may try to pressure you into accepting a very low settlement offer early on in the process, before you realize the full cost of your treatment. Once you settle, the insurance company may not be responsible for paying any injury-related expenses later. This means that if you settle before your treatment is over and it turns out to be more expensive than you thought, you will be responsible for the bills.
- They may delay your claim, preventing you from getting the compensation you need to get treatment or reimburse your medical providers.
- They may deny your claim entirely.
- They may confuse you with a maze of paperwork and complicated, dense contracts full of legal language.
