Do Not Be Bullied By The Insurance Company

When dealing with the negligent driver's insurance company, it is important to keep one thing in mind at all times: The insurance company is not there to help you.

Insurance companies are businesses. They make a lot of money, and they do it by collecting insurance premiums and minimizing the amount they pay out in claims. They have many methods of denying or devaluing car accident claims.

In some cases, they may have an insurance adjuster contact you and act like your friend. The adjuster will tell you he or she is on your side. The adjuster will make you an offer and make it sound like it is a good one. If you accept it, you will not be able to ask for more when the money runs out. In other cases, the insurance company may simply ignore you. Your calls will not be returned. When you send in paperwork, it will get lost. The insurer may try to frustrate you into giving up and walking away with no money or a small settlement.

You do not have to let the insurance company push you around. You can enlist an advocate to stand up to the bully on your behalf. At Tisdal & O'Hara, PLLC, we pride ourselves on our ability to take on major opponents and get fair compensation for car wreck victims.

The Experience To Get Results In Car Accident Claims

Our attorneys have more than 100 years of combined experience handling car accidents and other personal injury claims on behalf of injured Oklahomans. Whether through skillful settlement negotiations or aggressive trial work, we will do everything it takes to help you get the money you need to cover medical bills, lost wages and other costs.

Why It Is So Important To Get The Right Amount Of Compensation?

One of the most difficult aspects of car wreck claims is simply understanding how much compensation is fair. Many people accept a settlement because it seems like it is sufficient, only to find that it does not end up covering all the costs. Often, this is because a settlement is offered and accepted before the full extent of an injury is even understood.

Our lawyers frequently handle cases that involve injuries that require substantial medical treatment, including surgeries, physical therapy and pain management. Treatment may need to continue for years. In some cases, a lifetime of care is necessary. We refuse to let victims of negligence suffer physically and financially because an insurance company did not play fair.

Causes Of Car Wrecks

We have handled car accident claims of all kinds. Understanding the cause is important, because it can impact compensation, among other things. For example, if an accident was caused by a drunk driver, the victim may be entitled to punitive damages.

We represent victims of drunk driving accidents, distracted driving accidents, reckless driving accidents, defective auto accidents and more.
