Automobile Insurance Claim Disputes

The way insurance companies do business can come as a shock to people who have never filed a large claim. Insurance companies and their lawyers attach a value to your case that may have little to do with how badly you were injured. Once you are assigned a number, the insurance company will gladly consider it a "win" if it gives you less. These companies use sneaky methods and tactics to limit the amount they pay out. The validity of your claim will affect the number it attaches to you, not the way it treats you.

In New Jersey, people buying car insurance are given a choice when they buy a policy. You either choose the limited tort threshold or the no-limit tort threshold. That choice affects your premiums and your right to recover after an accident. The choice does not guarantee the outcome of your case, but it can substantially impact it.

Understanding Your Car Accident Injuries

If you have been put out of work by your injuries, the question of how long it takes to get compensation is probably foremost in your mind. Insurance companies often prey on people who are under tremendous pressure to pay bills and stay above water after a debilitating accident. Offering a quick settlement far below the value of your claim is one way these companies may attempt to take advantage of you. We have the experience to understand the law and your injuries to ensure that you don't accept an unfair settlement.
