Following a serious motor vehicle accident, victims must face the adversarial process of dealing with the liable driver’s insurance carrier. The insurance provider is not required to provide benefits to or negotiate in good faith with an injured accident victim if they can categorically prove that their policyholder was not responsible for the accident. 

The sooner an insurance adjuster can talk to the victim, the more proof they can gather to use against them in future negotiations.

Often, the only way to obtain a fair settlement award for a serious injury or wrongful death is to file a suit and litigate the claim. Insurance companies have even been known to force cases to trial. 

A common tactic employed by insurers is to stall the legal process as long as possible hoping that the claimant or their family will eventually concede defeat.
