You should expect the insurance company to use every strategy and resource at its disposal to dispute your claim. The insurance adjuster might try to coerce you into providing a recorded statement that can be used against you. For example, you may be asked about the severity of your loved one’s injuries before he or she has reached maximum medical improvement. If your family member’s injuries turn out to be more severe than anticipated, your statements may be used to challenge the extent of the damages.
The adjuster may even scrutinize your social media profiles (and the profiles of your loved ones) to find evidence that can be used to dispute liability or damages. For instance, a seemingly benign photo of the nursing home abuse victim might be used as evidence to dispute the severity of injuries.
If you hire a seasoned nursing home abuse attorney from Donaldson & Weston, you will not have to go up against the insurance company alone. We will handle all correspondence with the insurer and coach you on ways to give your claim the best chance of success.
We know the tactics used by insurance companies to reduce their liability, and we will not let them take advantage of you during the proceedings. Our legal team will do everything in their power to help you fight for a fair settlement such as:
- Anticipating potential disputes and then taking steps to mitigate them;
- Gathering evidence of liability and damages;
- Calculating damages;
- Consulting expert witnesses if necessary; and
- Letting the insurance company know we are not afraid to take the case to court.
