THE FOUR TRICKS INSURANCE COMPANIES USE DURING INJURY CASES
Attorney Tyson Mutrux describes in this video the four tricks insurance companies use during injury cases
Hi! Tyson Mutrux here with Mutrux Finney, P.C.. Today I’m talking about the four tricks that insurance companies use whenever they’re handling your personal injury case.
Number 4 is they try to delay the case as long as they can. They delay, they delay, they delay because they know that you’re gonna be getting collection notices from hospitals, doctors wanting their money. They know that you’re gonna get scared. It’s affecting you a lot more than it’s affecting the insurance adjuster, so they know that you’re gonna be more likely to settle the case.
Now it leads to Number 3. They start asking for more and more unnecessary information. They ask for a lot of things when it comes to your family, other treatment you got prior to this case. They keep asking for more and more until the case keeps dragging out more and more.
Number 2 is they’re gonna start picking apart your liability. They’re gonna say that you’re 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% at fault, and every percentage point that they say that you’re at fault is more money that comes out of your pocket.
And that leads to Number 1. Number 1 is very similar to Number 2. They start to pick apart your medical bills and your medical treatment. They start making claims that, “The treatment’s unnecessary,” or “It’s unrelated. It’s related to some sort of other injury that you got in the past.” And so it’s the same thing as with liability, they’re gonna start taking money out of your pocket by saying that the treatment’s not necessary. Remember, you’re on hook for those bills; they’re not.
