Insurance Claims After Slip and Falls
Were you injured due to a slip and fall on someone else’s property? The insurance claims process can be confusing and time consuming. Watch this video to find out what you need to know about insurance claims after slip and falls to best protect your rights.
If you are injured in a slip and fall case where you sustained a serious injury, in New York, I recommend that you never speak to the insurance company. The insurance company is there to protect their client. The insurance company is not there to protect you. The primary goal of every insurance company is to make profit, so they can give money to their shareholders. Making profit and making you a big offer are not the same thing. They’re not interested in settling the case. They’re not interested in helping you. They’re interested in helping themselves and protecting their client.
You should never speak to an insurance company. You should never fill out any forms provided by the insurance company. You should first hire yourself an experienced personal injury lawyer who has experience in slip and fall cases. That lawyer will guide you. They will talk to the insurance company for you, or if the company wants your recorded statement and the lawyer thinks it’s advisable, they will be with you when the statement is being recorded. That lawyer will review any and all forms, and help you fill them out. Sometimes it’s best just to avoid them completely; there’s nothing to be gained. It depends on the situation, but you will know the answer to that by having an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows exactly what to do, how to handle it, and how to represent you in front of these insurance companies. Insurance companies are not your friend; always remember that. In any situations, they are not there to help you.
