After an accident, most people think that the insurance company is going to take care of them by helping them recover the full extent of damages. What most people fail to realize is that insurance companies are in business for profit. Rarely does a business actually want to hand out money unless it absolutely has to. That’s why we deal with insurers, so you don’t have to.
It’s for this reason that a lot of accident victims experience pushback from insurers regarding their claims. Insurers may undervalue a claim or tell a victim that their damages are not covered by their policy in hopes of getting a victim to withdraw their claim or accept a lower settlement than they deserve.
At Chatham Gilder Howell Pittman, we don’t believe you should be treated with such disrespect nor do we think this is a headache you should have to deal with. Your attention should be on your recovery not the frustration of dealing with the insurance company.
Our Role in the Claim Process: Deal With Insurers
Our lawyers start protecting your rights from the very beginning, offering guidance on what to do after an accident, walking you through the legal process, negotiating a settlement with the insurer and making sure they are not acting in bad faith.
Because of our focus on personal injury claims for 54 combined years, our attorneys are able to estimate the extent of a client’s injuries and what types of treatments they will need just by considering the type of accident they were involved in. We then present this information to insurers to ensure a settlement takes care of all our client’s medical needs — including those that have yet to happen.
We will handle all of the paperwork associated with your case so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries. If your claim is denied, we will thoroughly investigate why and help you determine if you have coverage under another policy.
