Anchorage Insurance Claim Attorneys

 

If you have been injured in a car accident, you probably have an insurance claim – or several.  Med-pay, health insurance, plus third party liability. It can be hard to know where to start. It can be very helpful to spend a few minutes with a personal injury attorney, just to get a “roadmap” of the claims process.  Most people find it reassuring that the initial consultation is free, and doesn’t require a commitment or quick decision on how to proceed.

Insurance claims can be confusing, and adjusters can be helpful or misleading.  The deck is really stacked in favor of the person with experience, and it is the adjuster’s job to pay as little as possible.  

Most people just want what is fair and reasonable.  Many people start off with the impression that the insurance company is on their side.  In fact, Allstate has had a training manual titled “From Good Hands to Boxing Gloves.”  If you would like some guidance, without pressure, regarding an insurance claim involving personal injury – consult with an Anchorage personal injury attorney. Banker Law Group PC has experience helping resolving hundreds of insurance claims and offers no-cost legal consultations.  Sometimes all you need is a little guidance, and a focused chat with someone who knows how things operate.

What Is An Insurance Claim?

Anytime someone seeks payment from an insurance company, it’s called an “insurance claim.”

The Role of the Insurance Adjuster

The role of the insurance adjuster is to protect the interests of the insurance company.  Every insurance claim is assigned to an insurance adjuster. The adjuster collects information and reports to supervisors at the insurance company.  This person is responsible for investigating the claim. They help the company decide how much a claim is worth, and they negotiate with injured people.  Many insurance companies offer bonus pay and promotions to adjusters who settle claims for less than reasonable value.

The Role of the Personal Injury Attorney

The insurance adjuster will be looking out for the best interest of the company. An Anchorage personal injury attorney will be looking out for you.

Insurance companies use confusing language.  Sometimes they say “this is all the insurance” when there is another $200,000 available in another policy.  

We see insurance companies attempting to take advantage of good people with some regularity.    

Example:

12 year old – on bicycle in crosswalk – hit by driver running red light without insurance

The claim was initially denied.

Insurance adjuster told parents that their coverage did not apply.

Attorney Anthony Banker recovered over $200,000 from that insurance company  

Example: Dennis

54 year-old – in friend’s vehicle – hit by distracted driver

Told he could only recover $50,000

Told by his insurance company that coverage did not apply

We recovered $238,000
