Dealing With The Insurance Company

Skilled Guidance From Experienced California Personal Injury Attorneys

Dealing Insurance Company Dealing with insurance companies after an accident can be an extremely frustrating experience in an already difficult situation. Many injured victims are left confused and angry over how they are treated by insurance adjusters. Before you speak to an insurance representative, you should contact a knowledgeable trial lawyer at our firm, Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P.

What to Expect

Depending on the nature of your accident, you may receive an offer to settle your case very quickly. These early offers are not made to help you get on with your life. They are an attempt by the insurance company to get you to accept less than it thinks your case is worth. You should never settle a claim before you have a firm understanding of your injuries and how they will affect your life going forward.

Insurance Bad Faith and Denied Claims

Fast settlement offers are one way insurance adjusters attempt to limit what they pay out after an accident. Another method is to get you to make a statement or answer a question in a way that favors their interests. By answering a question the wrong way or signing a statement prepared by the insurance company, you can lose your chance to recover compensation. If you give an insurance company what it wants, your claim could easily be denied.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
