Insurance Companies’ Tactics After a Client Injury

The problem today lies in the tactics employed by insurance companies, which make people feel guilty or ashamed when pursuing a claim after someone has been injured.

Let’s be clear: insurance companies are driven by profit. While this fact doesn’t offend me, it’s essential not to lose sight of their primary objective – paying out as little as possible for injuries while collecting higher insurance premiums.

However, we observe today that individuals who have suffered injuries through no fault of their own are made to feel guilty for even considering pursuing a claim.

Seeking compensation through insurance claims enables them to cover medical expenses, recover lost wages resulting from their inability to work, or, in the case of a death, obtain funds that would have been contributed to the household by the deceased spouse.
