Insurance Companies: Not A Friend

Insurance companies like to pretend that they are the good guys after an injury accident. Television commercials for insurers emphasize how they will go the extra mile for a customer.

However, if you suffer a personal injury, it is important to understand the main goal of an insurance company is to take in premiums and pay out as little money as possible. Insurance companies do not remain profitable by paying out too much money on every claim, which is why they often step in and make an immediate lowball offer. Be very careful if that happens.

At Holland Injury Law, LLC, our founding attorney, William K. Holland, began his career working on behalf of insurance companies. After seeing too many people getting treated unfairly, he decided to switch sides to represent personal injury plaintiffs. He uses his "insider knowledge" of how insurance companies operate, and combines it with a winning reputation as a personal injury lawyer. He has tried 43 jury trials to verdict and has obtained 24 settlements of $1 million or more — most of them multimillion-dollar outcomes.

Understand Who Is On Your Side In A Personal Injury Claim

We are.

Because insurance companies hold the key to getting the money you need after an injury accident, you must understand that they will be your enemy if your case proceeds to trial in Missouri. During settlement negotiations, the insurance company is fighting hard to minimize your injury and diminish the amount of compensation you claim.

Most often, the person or company that caused your injury has insurance. However, there are many situations where the defendant is uninsured or underinsured. We will then pursue an uninsured or underinsured motorist case against your automobile liability insurance company. When your insurance company provides coverage, then they are your adversary and they will attempt to minimize your injuries or possibly claim you have some responsibility for the accident. William K. Holland has handled hundreds of uninsured and underinsured cases. In fact, he has often lectured other attorneys on how to handle uninsured and underinsured insurance claims.
