Call an experienced Pennsylvania insurance claims lawyer at Purchase, George and Murphey, P.C. at 814-833-7100 for more information about how to get an equitable settlement for your accident claim.
Many accident victims would like to settle their claims with insurance companies rather than go to trial. When an insurance company is willing to provide a fair and equitable settlement, then there are advantages to settling. However, many insurance companies make it difficult to settle claims.
Common Hurdles to Settling an Equitable Insurance Claim
An insurance company may, for example, deny a claim that it knows to be valid or offer an extremely low settlement amount. Insurance companies often play on accident victims’ financial fears and encourage them to take quick settlements for less money than they deserve.
How Your Erie Auto Insurance Claims Lawyer Can Help
The lawyers of Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. understand how insurance companies work and can help you in a couple of important ways. Specifically:
- We Can Work to Increase the Amount of Your Insurance Claim.
People who are represented by lawyers typically settle their insurance claims for more money than those who represent themselves. Allstate’s own training manual for its insurance adjustors indicates that when an injured party is represented by a lawyer, they are likely to settle for two to three times more than someone who is unrepresented by counsel.*
- We Can Reduce the Stress Caused by Your Insurance Company.
The games that insurance adjusters play can be stressful for a victim. They can require a victim to spend a lot of time and energy making his or her case to the insurance company — at a time when the victim’s time and energy are better spent recovering from his or her injuries. A lawyer can handle all of the insurance negotiations for you so that you can spend your time healing and rebuilding your life after your accident.
