  • Your medical bills are reaching Louisiana policy limits of $15,000.
  • You are suffering from PTSD, phobias, anxiety, or depression.

Dirty Car Insurance Company Tricks

Geismar Personal Injury Lawyers can be important liaisons with big insurance companies who are notorious for using dirty tricks that put more profits in their pockets. Louisiana is a “fault” state for motor vehicle collisions, meaning that whoever is deemed responsible for causing the crash has to pay for all damages. Sometimes fault is clearly assessed in the initial police report, but other times insurance companies will do their best to:  

  • DENY – Denying valid claims boosts bottom line insurance company profits – there’s no denying that! According to the American Association for Justice, some of the nation’s top insurance providers pay claims adjusters incentives like pizza parties, $25 gift certificates, and mini portable refrigerators for meeting low payment goals.
  • DELAY – Commonly, insurers use the excuse that you “did not fill out the correct paperwork” as a delay tactic, hoping you’ll give up or die before they have to pay. Sometimes they deliberately mail out incorrect paperwork in order to eventually deny the claim. In other cases, insurers withhold payment until the policyholder provides “supporting documents” not required under the terms of the policy. Insurers hope to keep your claim “processing” just long enough for your right to sue to expire.
  • DEFEND – Insurance companies retain high-priced attorneys on the payroll to remain trial-ready at all times. They use fear tactics to convince claimants that there is no use attempting to battle them in court. Individuals filing solo are not likely to win against the top defense lawyers. Geismar Personal Injury Lawyers put you on a level playing field.
