Insurers’ Thirst For Profits Will Disadvantage You
Insurance companies employ a range of tactics in their efforts to underpay injury claims. Simply put, the less they pay to injury victims, the more profitable their company will be — and profitability is their chief aim.
Drawing on more than 75 years of combined experience, the attorneys at Parthemos & Curran, PLLC, are skilled at recognizing insurers’ strategies. With offices in Winchester and Prince William County, we offer experienced, effective guidance to clients throughout Northern Virginia and help them maximize their compensation.
Be Wary Of Quick Offers
After a serious accident, an insurance agent will often make an instant offer to individuals who have sustained serious injuries. Such offers are tempting to accept — after all, it is common to worry about one’s immediate medical costs, and it may seem as if the insurance company is actively helping to pay.
However, these initial offers routinely — and intentionally — fail to account for one’s ongoing needs. Recovery is a lengthy process, and there will be associated fees that are not obvious from the very outset. Injuries to the brain, neck and spine, for example, can take a long time to manifest and require continued therapy and treatment.
Our lawyers work closely with a range of medical professionals who can accurately assess the medical needs and costs of injury victims. We build our claims around their findings, and work rigorously to obtain the maximum compensation available for the clients we serve.
Private Eyes On Your Public Life
In many cases, insurers use surveillance on injured individuals. They hire private detectives to follow victims, in the hopes of catching them performing strenuous activities that call into question the severity of one’s injury. Likewise, insurers use social media to keep track of victims’ day-to-day behavior.
At Parthemos & Curran, PLLC, we make sure our clients understand how insurers approach injury claims, and help them navigate around the most common legal mistakes.
