The insurance company will use every excuse it can to deny your claim or pay you as little as possible after a car crash or accident. To avoid this, make sure all correspondence goes through your personal injury lawyer. This helps protect your claim or prevents you from accidentally harming your ability to get the maximum compensation possible.
With more than 500 years of combined experience and a long history of fighting for injured Ohioans, Kisling, Nestico & Redick can help you understand your rights and successfully guide you through the insurance process.
Let us remove the stress and handle the documents. Call KNR at 1-800-HURT-NOW or use our online form for a free consultation.
KNR founding partner, attorney Rob Nestico, knows that insurance companies will take advantage of accident victims. When he was just 15 years old, he was severely injured in a car accident and he and his family were vulnerable to the scrupulous practices of an insurance company. Since then, he has worked to protect the rights of his clients.
The insurance company of the person at fault will do anything to pay you as little as possible. They may blame you for the accident, file a counter-lawsuit, and refuse to negotiate fairly. These actions can cause you significant stress that you shouldn’t have to deal with alone. Rather than handling issues with the insurance company yourself, let your attorney do it instead.
The insurance company will likely overwhelm you with documents. They will send you medical releases, requests for written statements, and other official papers. It can be difficult to know what you should sign and what might harm your claim. Let KNR review all documents and only give the insurer what is required by law.
We know personal injury law, and we understand the discovery process. The discovery process is a time when both sides send information to one another about the case. The insurer will ask you for medical records and more. You don’t have to give them your entire life history. And, in fact, if you do, they may use some of it against you.
For example, if you were injured in a previous car accident decades ago, the insurer of the person at fault in your most recent wreck might try to blame some of our injuries on previous conditions. In reality, they are trying to get out of paying you money. KNR will make sure we only give them the information that is necessary and will not harm your claim.
When you work with insurance companies, there are often deadlines you must meet to file a claim, submit information, sign documents, file a lawsuit, conduct discovery, and more. If you fail to meet any of these deadlines, your claim may be denied and you may not be able to get any money for your injuries. KNR will make sure you meet all of the legal deadlines. We won’t let your claim get denied for a technicality.
Insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind. They will take advantage of you by offering you a low-ball settlement and convincing you to sign unnecessary documents. Don’t manage your claim alone. Contact Kisling, Nestico & Redick to navigate the complex insurance process and collect all the documents you need.
