Insurance companies: not on your side after an accident

Car accidents are something we all try to avoid, but typically most people will find themselves calling their auto insurance provider to make a claim at least once every ten years. Insurance companies portray themselves as "neighbors" or "on your side" in commercials, and many adjusters are very good at making their clients believe it is true, especially in the emotional aftermath of a car accident. But the relationship they have with their client in not personal. It's business. And ultimately, paying an accident victim less, denying a claim all together, or finding partial fault to justify a rate increase is in the insurance company's best interest. More often than not, an adjusters loyalty lies with the one who signs their own paycheck.

Common car accident injuries

When people think of personal injuries, many think immediately of car accidents. In 2012, 1.6 million people were injured in car accidents, and 30,000 were killed. This is because cars are commonly used heavy pieces of moving machinery that are capable of causing serious damage and/or death to a person who comes in contact with it in the wrong way.
