Unveiling the Best Defense Against Unfair Insurance Payouts

The best defense or solution to the problem of insurance companies paying nothing or very little to injured people is to find and hire a lawyer who can bring their case against the insurance company and get a favorable result.


Trial Readiness: Driving Fair Compensation from Insurance Companies

The insurance company will now realize that the lawyer is ready, willing, and able to go to trial to pursue the claim on behalf of their client, so they will not be able to settle quickly and cheaply.

Secondly, if the lawyer and law firm are competent trial attorneys, achieve good results at trial, know how to effectively present a case, communicate the facts of that case to a jury, and the result is more favorable than what the insurance company previously offered, the insurance company is going to begin realizing, “Why don’t we save our time and money by paying fair value on the claim?”

The problem is that most lawyers, or indeed, many lawyers, are not willing to go to trial against insurance companies or big corporations. Therefore, they should start taking cases to trial and make insurance companies realize that we are serious about the claim and that we will not back off or accept a settlement that is less than fair for our client.

So, that’s the best defense.
