Personal Injury Claim  
Recovering damages following a personal injury claim can be a long and frustrating experience when insurance companies want to be difficult. All insurance companies have a standard personal injury process policy when handling claims that is focused on details that could potentially relief them of responsibility to pay the claim or at least lessen the amount of damages they must cover. This can be especially troublesome in no fault states like New York, even though the injured victim will turn to their own personal auto policy for first claims up to $50,000. Further litigation can be pursued as well when personal injury protection funds are maximized, especially when there are extenuating circumstances that could result in a major settlement. These are the cases that eventually find the way to a New York court room when negotiations breakdown over value of a claim.

Stalling a Claim

One of the primary methods insurance companies use to lessen a claim is making a low ball settlement offer. In essence, it is take or leave it. This is then followed by an unwillingness to settle the personal injury claim for a higher amount and possibly opting to take a case to court. Many times the reason given to the plaintiff personal injury lawyer is the level personal contribution to causing the accident by the injured plaintiff. All claims are discounted by the comparative negligence percentage of any claimants, which can negatively impact a claim for an injured driver with a significant fault percentage. Even in a no fault state, fault can still matter when a personal injury lawyer is negotiating a maximum settlement.

Going to Court

When an attorney and the insurance company claims agent cannot agree on a fair claim settlement, the personal injury case will then be scheduled for a hearing. This personal injury process can take a significant amount of time in congested local courts like the New York judicial system. This is actually very common in situations like wrongful death claims because it provides the plaintiff legal counsel an opportunity to request punitive damages from the jury.

Insurance companies do not necessarily like going to court, but will choose the option when they think they can avoid paying damages or greatly reducing whole damages. Wrongful death is the most serious personal injury case, and they are also prime example of when insurance providers will strongly defend against a personal injury case of high value. Claim value matters to everyone involved.
