Have you suffered an injury and feel that the insurance company will not pay you what you deserve? This can be draining both emotionally and financially. Don’t let them take advantage of you in your time of need. 

Kohan & Bablove Injury Attorneys is here to ensure that the insurance company pays you what you are owed in the event of an injury.

Whether your injury came from a motor vehicle accident, product liability, defective drugs, or mass tort resulting in a potentially serious and catastrophic injury, the insurance company benefits from trying to pay you as little as they can to settle your claim. There are things that can be done to avoid this happening to you. 

Avoid Making this Most Common Mistake

When you are injured, you are entitled to restitution, but you may be overwhelmed. Injury victims may be facing medical bills, damage to property, inability to work to pay their bills, and pain and suffering

The insurance company may try to rush to give you an offer in hopes you will accept without knowing the full value and impact of your injuries. It may sound good at first to accept and begin to move forward, but is this accurate compensation?

Do not immediately accept the initial liability offer. They will try to get you to consent to an offer when you are at your most vulnerable. Offers are made to lure the unsuspecting into signing something they might not understand, sometimes in bad faith. With legal advice, you can discuss whether physical trauma is short-term or long-term 

Keep Complete and Accurate Records

Thorough documentation is the key to settling for an amount that is fair. Know what your expenses and injuries are in their entirety. Track all of your expenses and retain the receipts, get multiple estimates in regard to property damage, and document time lost from work and other activities of daily living. 

Evidence is also an important element in completing the picture of what you are owed. It confirms who is at fault and the extent of the damage or injury. Photographs, medical records, and police reports, for example, are highly relevant in a personal injury case and the insurance company may avoid investigating to the extent they should. 

Seek Legal Help Getting Your Fair Compensation

A personal injury case involves liability insurance which would cover both businesses and individuals whom you would be making a claim against. These companies have high incentives to settle low. They may say your injuries are not as bad as you are reporting, that you are at fault, that repairs to damage may be done at a lesser cost, or may leave our charges in their calculations. 

You should never agree to a lowball offer. The insurers have attorneys on their side, and you should too! We know the California laws and will advocate for you.
