How Insurance Companies Trick Accident Victims
Some insurance companies with the TV mascots and jingles have been tricking injured car accident victims into waiving all their rights before they hire a lawyer. Here’s how it works: The insurance company sends an email to the injured accident victim within a few days of the accident, while they are still recovering from injuries.
The insurance adjuster tells the injured person that “your payment for your injury claim is waiting” and to “click here” to collect the money within the next few days otherwise ‘I will close my file.” The false suggestion is that if the adjuster closes his file that the injured person will not be able to recover any more money.
The offer is usually for a relatively small amount and gives the impression that it represents money only for what happened in the last few days since accident. However, in the fine print of the terms and conditions, the injured person is waiving all rights to make a claim for any further payments. Do not let this happen to you.
