"Developing our capacity for compassion makes it possible for us to help others in a more skillful and effective way." - Joan Halifax
Insurance claims are often a necessary part of personal injury cases. In most situations, the responsible party will pay for the victim’s injuries through their insurance policy, whether it is auto insurance, homeowners insurance or any other type of policy they may have. A victim’s own insurance policy may also cover payment. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible for the average person to accurately determine what their insurance claim may be worth. It is also a possibility that the insurance company will attempt to deny the claim or offer a settlement that is worth less than that at which the actual claim should be valued.
In the face of an insurance dispute, consulting an experienced attorney is one of the most important actions to take. At times, simply the act of hiring a known legal professional can impact the insurance company’s decision to pay the true value of your claim.
