Get a Lawyer BEFORE the Insurance Company Denies Your Car Accident Claim

It’s a scenario we see all the time: someone gets hurt in a crash that wasn’t their fault, and they file a claim either against the other driver’s insurance company or their own (via personal injury protection coverage).

The facts and evidence are clear—they didn’t do anything to cause the crash, they suffered serious injuries, and they have big medical bills to pay. And yet, the insurance company denies them the payment they need.

Why does that happen? Simply put: because the insurance company knows it can get away with it! Major insurers are worth billions of dollars and they have plenty of money to spend on ad campaigns convincing the public of their altruism. But in reality, they are focused on one thing: making money for themselves. And paying innocent victims big settlement checks isn’t part of that plan.

Unfortunately, many people don’t realize the true nature of insurance companies until after they’ve spent weeks or months recovering and counting on a policy to take care of their expenses, only to be told “no.” When that happens, they’re left scrambling for answers and a solution.

At Cofman Townsley, our St. Louis auto accident lawyers believe that victims should get a lawyer right away after a crash. Don’t wait until you’ve been denied or it’s clear the insurance company isn’t taking you seriously.

 The sooner you act, the better, as not only will more evidence be available, but the insurance company will also realize you aren’t someone to mess with. Contact us today for a free consultation, so we can protect your rights to the money you’re owed.
