Many people who are involved in auto accidents make the mistake of believing that if they simply tell their insurance company the truth they will have nothing to worry about. This idea is comforting in theory. But to believe that by telling the truth, one no longer has to worry about being taken advantage of is, in reality, a bit naive. The problem is that the idea that the truth will win out in the end—good will triumph over evil– ignores the possibility that the other driver in the accident, or his insurance provider, will not be honest.
This is not to suggest that all insurance companies are inherently bad. We are also not suggesting that all Peoria, Arizona auto accident victims should assume that every insurance company in the Southwest will knowingly take advantage of their situations. Obviously, this is not the case. However, the cold reality is that after a car accident, the insurance company has a job to do. That job is to try to settle the case while paying out the smallest amount of money possible. The bottom line is always the top priority.
Many people assume that insurance companies– especially their own– always intend to do a fair and faithful analysis of their case and reach a settlement that positively benefits the policyholder. It’s sad to say, but that is simply not what usually happens.
