Is the Insurance Company Trying to Delay My Personal Injury Claim?
The personal injury attorneys at Chhabra & Gibbs, PA have represented thousands of injured clients in Mississippi due to motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, work related injuries, and other types of injuries due to another party’s negligence. We often see insurance adjusters that are assigned to an injury claim, using common delay tactics when evaluating the claim. Often, the insurance adjusters are simply overloaded with claims and then many claims are put on the back burner. Before an adjuster can start negotiating your claim, they more than likely have several superiors evaluating and making the final decisions.
When your personal injury claim is first submitted to the insurance company, an adjuster will be assigned to it. The claims are assigned to adjusters depending on the facts of the claim and what their experience level is. The severity of injuries can cause your claim to be delayed. The adjuster may require an expert opinion. They may need to consult with an attorney regarding your claim. They may even delay your claim so that they can scope out your social media seeking to disprove your injuries.
Other common delays from insurance adjusters are simply disputing everything possible. They can delay your claim by putting smaller claims on their priority list above yours. Insurance adjusters are known to prey on injury attorneys who do not follow up on their demands or those attorneys that do not enforce time limits.
