Getting Paid After an Injury During the COVID-19 Crisis

The short answer is YES; you can get paid for an auto accident injury claim during the Coronavirus. However, getting paid after an injury during the COVID-19 crisis may be a bit difficult. As always, insurance companies do their best to protect their financial interests. Regardless of what television commercials portray, insurance firms cover their financial positions. That means they perform their due diligence prior to paying out a claim. In times of financial unrest, insurance fraud can go up. So if you’re waiting to get paid, it may take much longer.

So, what are your legal options if you’ve been hurt but need to collect a check from an insurance company during COVID? We sat down with Sarasota personal injury attorney Adam Shapiro today. He was kind enough to take time out of his work schedule to discuss his opinions about the uphill battle injury victims may face during these trying times.

Courts and Insurance Companies May Be Slower Than Normal

Insurance Companies May Over Scrutinize Your Claim

In times of financial uncertainty, insurance fraud can rise. Insurance companies are already susceptible to fraudulent schemes. It’s estimated that billions of dollars are lost to fraudulent insurance scams each year. So don’t be surprised if your claim is being checked, double-checked, and checked again. However, COVID and the financial crisis doesn’t give an insurance company a right to string you along or deny a liftgate claim. Let our Sarasota car crash lawyers handle your claim and represent your financial interests.

Injury Victims My Feel Pressured Into Accepting a Low Dollar Offer

In times of financial stresses, people may be willing to take a lowball offer. In fact, we have BIG concerns over injury victims feeling pressured into accepting a payment that is NOT in their best interest. See, insurance companies may offer you money quickly, hoping you accept far less than you are actually owed. Our injury lawyers will fight to get you paid what you deserve. In addition, we will work with you every step of the way so that you understand the offer.
