Make sure your Windsor Personal Injury Lawyers know how insurance companies think! When you sue as a result of a personal injury, your lawsuit is filed against the people or companies that played a role in causing the accident. However, in most cases, the persons who caused your injury will have liability insurance. What this means is that the money that you recover in your lawsuit does not actually come from the people who caused your injury, but rather from their insurance company. It also means that, for the most part, it is the insurance company that decides if there will be a settlement of your claim or if the matter will proceed to trial.
Knowing how insurance companies investigate and respond to a claim is therefore very important in achieving a favourable resolution of your claim. Prior to forming Paciocco & Mellow, the Windsor personal injury lawyers at Paciocco & Mellow represented insurance companies involved in personal injury lawsuits. This experience has given us a unique insight into how insurance companies work and how the people responsible for settling claims think. We now represent only people injuried in accidents and we will put our unique experence to work for you.
Your injury and the resulting claim is obviously a very personal experience to you. However, the defendant’s insurance representative likely is handling hundreds of files at any given time. You are just another claim number to them, rather than an injured person who needs help. At the end of the day, all the insurance representative is really concerned about is being able to justify the decisions that they make should their file get audited by their superiors. This means it is very important for your Windsor personal injury lawyers to provide the insurance company with the records, information and evidence that they need to justify making a payment to you to settle your claim.
The Windsor personal injury lawyers at Paciocco & Mellow work to ensure that we gather the evidence as quickly as possible which is necessary to prove your claim and convince the insurance company to pay you the compensation that you are entitled to. We will also work with you to make sure that you are able to present as favourably as possible to the insurance company representative. This includes in-depth preparation for all stages of the litigation process that involve your personal attendance, such as examinations for discovery, mediation, pre-trial conferences and trial. We will also provide you with guidance respecting the use of social media websites while your lawsuit is ongoing. This is important because the contents of your social media accounts may have to be produced in your lawsuit and all of your posts and activity can act as a form of self-surveillance.
