Insurance Claims Attorney Topeka & Lawrence

Insurance company adjusters owe a duty to their policyholders. When you are injured in a car accident or you suffer an injury because someone failed to exercise good judgment or provide a safe area on their premises, the insurer has an obligation to act in the best interest of their customer. In reality, this does not always occur, insurance adjusters are protecting the company’s bottom line. In some cases, insurance adjusters fail to make the proper inspections and conduct their own investigation. In other cases, they simply deny legitimate claims outright. This is when it is important to work closely with a Topeka, KS personal injury law firm.

Lawrence Car Accident Claims

Let’s assume you have been in a car accident in Overland Park, Shawnee County, Manhattan, Kansas City, Douglas County, Emporia, Wichita, Atchison, Olathe or Salina and you contact a personal injury attorney in Lawrence, KS. Because Kansas is a no-fault insurance state, you can file a claim because your injury is considered serious or life-altering. The insurance company denies your claim stating there is insufficient evidence to prove their client was at fault.

Once your personal injury attorney in Lawrence, KS has had an opportunity to review police reports and talk to witnesses to the accident, it is determined the other driver was at fault for your injuries and they submit a settlement offer to the insurance company on your behalf. The insurance adjuster has a duty to inform their customer, let them know if the settlement offer is outside the limits of their policy and let them know what the upside and downside of accepting the offer might be. This does not always occur because the insurance company makes money by collecting premiums and not paying claims whenever possible. A personal injury attorney in Lawrence, KS can help make sure they pay your claim in a timely manner.
