Insurance Companies and Car Wrecks
All San Antonio drivers are required to carry proof that they can cover the costs of potential accidents they may cause. In most cases, this proof takes the form of a current auto liability policy. An auto liability policy covers at-fault drivers after a San Antonio car accident. For the most part, auto liability policies pay fair compensation to victims and the issue is settled for both parties.
Every so often, however, a car insurance company fails to pay victims what they are owed. In this case, victims may feel overwhelmed; how are they going to navigate greedy insurance companies and car wreck injuries at the same time? With the help of a qualified San Antonio car accident lawyer, however, receiving fair compensation for your injuries is easy.Process of Filing an Insurance Claim After a Car Wreck
Most of us have had the experience of exchanging car insurance information with other drivers after a minor collision. However, things can get more complicated-- and uglier-- after a serious accident.
Normally, the process of filing a car insurance claim looks like:
- Both parties contact their insurance companies to notify them of the accident
- Victim files a police report for the insurance companies’ records
- The liable party’s insurance adjuster will review the facts of the case and offer the victim a final pay-out
- The victim will accept the pay-out and sign a release
However, in order for this process to go smoothly, there cannot be any doubt about who is the liable party. If an insurance adjuster does not recognize their client’s culpability in your accident, they may refuse any financial liability. Additionally, even if the insurance company recognizes liability, there is always the possibility that the offered pay-out will not cover the full cost of the victim’s damages.Taken Advantage of by Greedy Insurance Companies?
The reality is, insurance companies are not your friend; first and foremost, insurance companies are a business. In order to protect the interests of their business, insurance companies will do whatever they can to reduce their pay-out-- even when their client has been proven liable for your injuries.
Filing a car accident injury lawsuit can help victims holding insurance companies liable for their client’s negligence. In order to ensure the success of your claim, it is important to hire a qualified personal injury lawyer. The job of any auto accident lawyer serving San Antonio is to ensure their clients’ right to fair compensation is protected; with quality representation, victims and their families can hold liable parties accountable.
All accident victims deserve justice for their injuries. If you’ve been offered an insurance pay-out that does not cover the full cost of your physical, financial, and emotional losses, it is time to explore your legal options.The Texas Car Wreck Attorneys at Carabin Shaw
