As personal injury cases continue to become more complicated, insurance companies will continue to have the leverage and “hold the cards” in terms of the nature of the settlement and its amount. Attorneys today don’t exude the same “fear factor” power to get the insurance companies’ attention that they once did. Cases are taking longer to settle and sometimes for subpar amounts.   

Who is the “worst nightmare” of every insurance company?

The main reason this is happening is that insurance companies today aren’t taking attorneys seriously simply because they don’t have to. The insurance companies have deep pockets and will do everything in their power to avoid paying on claims. Oftentimes they are able to take advantage of the standard demand package or trial documents presented that do not portray the client’s true impairments, disabilities, and how these two affect the client’s livelihood. 

So, who is the insurance companies’ worst nightmare? Someone like me, a doctor that has the personal injury know-how and certifications to back it up. I have decades of experience educating insurance companies about client impairments and disabilities and explaining demand letters and trial documents from a doctor’s perspective.
