What is the role of insurance companies in personal injury cases?

A claim will result in an investigation by the insurance company that may lead to a settlement offered by the insurance company. Usually, a claimant's lawyer files a personal injury lawsuit if a fair settlement cannot be reached with the insurance company. This is where insurance comes into play. In most cases, insurance pays the judgment on behalf of the negligent party.

Even a small business can comply with an important agreement or judgment by paying their insurance company. Insurance allows the victim of an injury to be reasonably certain that, when they win the trial, the amount won will be paid. Insurance is one of the players in the world of personal injury that operates largely behind the scenes. The personal injury lawyers at Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman know the ins and outs of the insurance business in Hawaii.

The insurance that the law does require Florida residents to have is Personal Injury Protection (PIP), which does not pay victims for the negligence of the insured. To fight against these insurance companies, you need a specialized and experienced personal injury lawyer on your side. Contact the personal injury lawyers at Brill & Rinaldi today for a free consultation on your case. In a personal injury trial, the jury is not allowed to know that the defendant is insured, that the insurance will pay the claim, or even that the insurance pays the defendant's lawyer (as is most often the case).

With decades of cumulative experience fighting insurance companies, the personal injury lawyers at Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman know how to maximize your case.
