Do Insurance Companies Drag Out Car Accident Claims?

After a car crash, many people find that even a relatively straightforward insurance claim can be difficult to settle. Insurance adjusters may put off your calls or make very low offers that do not cover the full amount of your expenses. In this video, attorney Christopher Castro explains why insurance companies drag out car accident claims and how an attorney can help. Video Transcription I believe that insurance companies, particularly when they’re dealing with individuals alone, without counsel, they are going to delay. They’re going to push you away. Either they won’t take your call or they—when they speak with you, they’re going to tell you that my supervisor is addressing the question.

Radio. Whatever it…
