What You Are Up Against
The Insurance Company & Corporate Motivation to Defeat You
At the time you were injured, or your loved one killed as a result of another’s negligence, you entered a playing field that is not fairly balanced to protect your rights. Corporations and Insurance Companies will spend countless dollars and endless manpower in an attempt to defeat your claim or limit the fair compensation you are due.
Lobbying and Tort Reform
Big Business Associations, Corporations and Insurance Companies have spent multi-million dollars on Congressional and Legislative lobbying efforts to pass laws for tort reform to prohibit access to the courts and to restrict the rights of individuals to seek full and fair compensation when they have been unjustly harmed, injured, or killed. We are faced with many laws now that make it extremely difficult and in some cases not even possible to obtain for the injured full, fair and just compensation.
Industry Media Campaigns
Major corporations, Industry Associations, and Liability Insurance Companies further their mission with media advertising campaigns to poison the public’s view of our legal system and propagate the dissemination of anecdotal cases with unusual results without telling the full truth and the whole story. This propaganda has resulted in poisoning the minds of many juror’s which have had over the years a significant effect on lowering verdicts on many types of cases. As a further result of the tort reform propaganda, and the resulting effect that is seen in reducing jury verdicts, we also see that Insurance Companies are not willing to offer fair settlements in most cases until the Insurance Company and their Defense Attorney recognize that the Plaintiffs Lawyer is an experienced and recognized TRIAL LAWYER, who has FULLY PREPARED the case for trial, and is in fact READY and WILLING TO GO TO TRIAL.
Industry Attempts to Discourage Hiring an Attorney
The efforts of some major Insurance Companies have been uncovered where they actually write letters to injured claimants to discourage them from seeking legal representation. They recognize that it is only with legal representation that a claimant has a chance to even the playing field in the quest for JUSTICE FOR THE INJURED. The success that the Insurance Companies have had in tainting the minds of jurors has emboldened them to not offer fair settlements in many cases until you prove to them that you are ready, willing, and able to go to trial. Some Corporations and even Physicians Offices may attempt to have you sign away your legal rights to bring claims against them or to restrict your access to the court system.
Insurance Company Tactics
On Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2007, CNN aired a report that revealed the tactics many insurance companies are using to save themselves billions of dollars by reducing claims paid to minor-impact crash victims. These tactics—dubbed the “Three Ds,” DELAY, DENY, AND DEFEND — are discussed in the report by former insurance industry insiders. The CNN reporter’s investigation revealed that several major Insurance Companies have used these tactics during the course of the past 10 years. The result: 80 percent to 90 percent of accident victims settle without a fight for the small sums the companies offer. These individuals never receive full compensation for their injuries and damages.
