Recovering financial compensation after a crash can be complicated. In a perfect world the negligent driver would admit fault and the insurance company would agree to pay for the damages you suffered. Yet that is not how the process usually works.
Our bicycle accident attorneys fight for your rights
Negligent drivers typically do not admit fault and deny doing anything wrong. Even some police officers can incorrectly decide that a bicyclist was at fault even though they did nothing wrong. Insurance companies are only too happy to believe their insured, because the companies would like to pay you as little as possible. The insurance adjusters may dispute the extent of your injuries or argue the injuries were pre-existing injuries not related to the crash. The insurance company may even blame you for what happened.
Another favorite tactic of insurance companies is the lowball settlement offer. Their adjuster will contact you shortly after the crash with a settlement offer. The insurance adjuster may even say it’s the best that they can do, but they will promise quick payment. The problem is that the lowball offer won’t even come close to covering all the damages you suffered.
Insurance companies have teams of adjusters and lawyers to argue for their best interests and try to minimize your compensation. That is why you need an experienced lawyer who will fight for you. We know the tactics insurance companies use and we help you fight back. Keating Law Offices’ attorneys focus on the facts to build a strong case that insurance companies must take seriously.
