3 Ways a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help Combat Insurance Disputes, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Insurance companies are supposed to pay for any damages or injuries caused by their client’s negligence, but they’re very good at getting out of this responsibility. From disputing liability to claiming insurance fraud, their legal teams have a variety of techniques for minimizing your claim or denying it altogether. When insurance disputes arise, a skilled personal injury lawyer is an excellent person to have in your corner.

How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help With Insurance Disputes

1. Proving Liability

A common tactic used by insurers is simply to claim that their client didn’t cause the accident in the first place. Most accident victims don’t have the experience to gather the supporting evidence they need to prove liability, especially when recovering from serious injuries. Experienced injury attorneys, on the other hand, have access to a wide range of professional resources, along with their own investigative skills, to provide evidence the insurer can’t deny.

2. Negotiating With Insurers

In fact, just having a legal representative often causes an insurance company to make a fair offer, since they know an experienced professional will be familiar with the tactics they use to reduce claim awards.

3. Leveraging Lawsuits

Insurers also know that personal injury lawyers won’t hesitate to take your case to court, which could be much more expensive than just honoring the claim. Although the vast majority of personal injury cases end in a settlement, the threat of a courtroom trial can be a powerful negotiating tool.
