Understanding the Insurance Company’s Motives

By Aline Miranda on November 27, 2013

People generally buy insurance for the purpose of protecting themselves and their assets. Home insurance, renters’ insurance, car insurance, business insurance, health insurance, life insurance, and other types of insurance are all designed to give a sense of security and provide reasonable compensation in the event that the insured item is damaged or lost.

Certain restrictions are built into most insurance policies, so it is important that you thoroughly review your policy to know what will and will not be covered if you are involved in a car accident. It is also paramount that you understand that insurance companies do not always play fair. Many give a false sense of security that is taken away the moment you file your first claim. An insurance company’s primary interest is to accept your payment and, if at all possible, avoid paying out on a claim. That is how they make their money.

Unfortunately, in some cases insurance companies completely deny legitimate claims or offer much less than is appropriate for the victim’s injuries and losses. When these types of situations occur, it is important that the victim speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
