In a perfect world, insurance companies would do what’s best for victims after a car accident, working hard to ensure that they receive the compensation they need to recover. In the real world, however, this is unfortunately not always the case. Like other businesses, insurance companies prioritize profit, and that often means giving accident victims lowball offers even when they aren’t enough to cover their bills.
One way that insurers get away with this behavior is by pressing victims to sign a medical or property damage release after an accident and using the information they uncover to justify a lowball offer. What many victims don’t know is that once they sign a release form, it will be difficult if not impossible to negotiate an offer that will cover their medical treatment.
