Ohio attorney Michael Eisner demonstrates why an insurance company fails to offer you a settlement and just wants to make you go to trial.
You expect in your accident case that the other side will see that they clearly did something wrong and settle immediately. But this is not always the case and even more so with insurance companies. They have a few reasons why they would want you to hold out until trial.
The most obvious reason for this is that the insurance company denies any wrongdoing on behalf of the other driver (or if it’s your own insurance company on their own behalf). This is typical as the last thing an insurance company wants to do is pay out a claim. They also may not offer a settlement because it simply is not going to be an offer big enough to cover your injuries and costs and this forces you to go to trial. And sometimes the insurance company simply doesn’t believe your injuries or believe that they are as significant and serious as represented. They underplay your injuries and the serious nature and in doing so fail to release the true extent of your injuries causing us to show proof and evidence by expert witness testimony at trial.
