Examples of Deceptive Claims Settlement Practices

Insurance companies are known to engage in an array of different types of deceptive claims settlement practices. By being able to identify these acts by an insurance company, you will better understand when the time has arrived to seek legal intervention on your behalf.

One of the most common types of deceptive claims settlement acts by an insurance company is improperly delaying the settlement process. Every state has a set of laws setting forth the manner and timeframe in which different types of insurance claims should be settled. Like most claimants, you may not have any idea what these timeframes are in regard to your own claim.

Insurance companies engage in deceptive claims settlement practices to continually pushing back the settlement of claim by contending further investigation needs to be undertaken. Insurance companies also push back a settlement in an unlawfully manner by contending a review of the evidence is still ongoing. While there can be lawful situations in which these delays can occur, an insurance company oftentimes abuses the process by raising these contentions.

Insurance companies use these types of tactics to essentially wear you down as a claimant. Insurance companies drag the claim settlement process along to leave you in the position of believing you should take whatever you can get from an insurance company now, even if it is an amount far less than what you really are entitled.

An extreme version of a deceptive claims settlement practice is denying a claim outright, when that course of action is not supported by the actual facts of the case.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
