Insurance Issues After Car Accidents

David Versus Goliath — Insurance Issues After Car Accidents

Insurance company attorneys are rarely friends of the injured. They work for profit-driven enterprises that exist to make money. One of the best ways to make money if you are an insurer is to not pay claims — or to pay as little of a claim as possible.

If you are injured in an accident and your insurer, or the insurer of the party that injured you, refuses to pay claims for your medical expenses, rehabilitation costs or other expenses covered by the insurance policy, it is important that you hire a skilled attorney who can work on your behalf.

PIP Personal Injury Protection — I Wrote the Book

Insurance litigation is complicated and can involve many players and factors that can affect the outcome of a case.

It is important to know that in Texas, all motorists are required to carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance or sign a waiver accepting liability for personal injury damages they cause.

“I’m a proud trial lawyer, because fighting giants never goes out of style.” — Attorney Kerry H. Collins

Motorists who carry PIP insurance are covered, at least partially, for medical expenses and other damages in the event they are injured in a motor vehicle accident. This is true whether or not they caused the accident. Since Texas gives motorists the option of waiving PIP coverage, unfortunately, many motorists who lack financial resources choose to waive it to save money. The result is that the very people who ought to be carrying insurance fail to do so.

PIP coverage is also referred to as an “no fault” coverage because it enables plaintiffs to seek specific compensation from their own insurer regardless of any fault.

Our law firm can use its knowledge of the insurance industry to your advantage in a wide variety of insurance situations, ranging from worker’s compensation to PIP.

Uninsured/underinsured coverage enables plaintiffs to seek compensation from their own insurer in the case the other driver lacks insurance or has inadequate auto insurance.

Like the biblical David, Mr. Collins is fearless in standing up to the Goliaths of the insurance industry and in representing plaintiffs with uninsured/underinsured claims. And like the biblical David, he knows how to strike a winning blow for those he represents.
