VIDEO FAQ: Why do insurance companies limit car accident payouts?

Posted by attorney Christopher Zachar

Personal Injury attorneys have jobs because insurance companies–although they are in the business of resolving claims, don’t typically see that as their first and foremost priority.

Insurance companies want to deny claims if they can. If they can’t deny a claim, want to limit the payout as long as they can or limit the amount paid—as much as possible. Make no mistake, it comes down to one thing—money. They want to hold on to their money for as long as they can and don’t want to pay it to you.

Let’s be clear on this: If insurance companies did what insurance companies are supposed to do, that is, treat you fair, place you “in good hands", treat you “like a good neighbor", etc…, then let’s face it – a lot of people who do what I do would be out of work, and we’d have to look for something else to do.
