As almost any Los Angeleno who’s been involved in a car accident can attest, insurance companies sometimes resort to means that many would deem unscrupulous or unfair in order to avoid paying an injured victim what he or she rightfully deserves. While it’s an ‘open secret’ that insurance often engage in bad faith tactics on order to avoid paying a claim, this doesn’t make it right. Or mean that you have to tolerate it. California law is clearly on your side. In fact, our legal system allows the ‘average person’ to take on these companies by obtaining the help of a personal injury or wrongful death attorney. You can contact BIKLAW to learn more about common insurance company tactics.
Experienced lawyers like Bradley I. Kramer, MD, Esq. constantly hear tragic and frustrating real life examples of insurance companies that stop at nothing to deny an innocent victim’s claim. In a recent case, for example, a local woman was out running routine morning errands when a truck drove over the center divider and plowed into her vehicle, causing a head-on collision. She was seriously injured and spent nine days in a coma. Her family was terrified. When the woman eventually woke up, she learned of the bad faith scheme her insurance company had cooked up: That the truck driver was acting out of road rage (common in Los Angeles) and that the crash was not an accident per se. Without a brain injury attorney like Bradley I. Kramer, MD, Esq., the woman would have had to pay for everything out of pocket, despite paying for an insurance policy for decades. Thankfully, hiring the right personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles helped her recover the money she was owed.
This woman was a victim of dishonest insurance company tactics and sadly, she’s not alone. Hundreds of Los Angelenos are ripped off by insurance companies each year and are denied claims that they rightfully deserve. While many insurance companies don’t take advantage of their customers, many do.
