You may have noticed that responses from your insurance company have slowed down over the past several weeks. As has been the case in most industries during the COVID-19 pandemic, insurance companies have had to adjust in new ways.
Minimizing Costs on Injury Claims
Governments have enforced social distancing measures, meaning that many offices have closed and employees are working from home. If employees aren’t working from home, many have been laid off or furloughed.
Companies are facing major losses in the COVID-19 economy. Losses in one industry often trickle into other industries as budgets decrease and people re-evaluate finances. With so many people tightening their financial grips, some insurance adjusters may be fighting harder to minimize costs.
Insurance companies are for-profit businesses. That means they have an incentive to make money from policyholders. Under normal circumstances, it has not been uncommon for adjusters to offer settlements of up to 50% less than cases are worth. It’s hard to say what rates you can expect under extreme circumstances. It may be more important than ever to hire an injury attorney early.
