Insurance Companies and Personal Injury Claims
Insurance companies are in the business of making money and will employ numerous tactics to stall or impede your personal injury claim. Seattle lawyer Pino Certa has the knowledge and experience to fight the insurance companies for you.
People like to think that when they purchase insurance they purchase peace of mind. Many people still believe in the "Good Hands People" or that insurance "Gets You Back Where You Belong." These people probably are fortunate enough never to have been involved in an accident or made an insurance claim.
Recently, Washington residents voted for the passage of the Insurance Fair Conduct Act (IFCA). This allows a certain group of people that have been wronged by an insurance company to sue the insurance company for up to three times their actual damages, plus attorney fees and costs. (RCW 48.30.015) The passage of this law is likely due to the insurance industry's continued unfair treatment of accident victims and policyholders as well as an insurance claim tactic known as "delay, deny and defend."
Let's face it: insurance is probably the biggest business out there. People insure their life, car, health, home, and business. Almost every aspect of life involves insurance.

Insurance companies know that, on average, people have little experience with the insurance claims process and little knowledge regarding what they are entitled to and how much compensation they should be receiving. Knowing this, the insurance companies also know that you pose little risk to them. They are the cat and you are the mouse that is continually being batted around by them.
However, all that changes once you retain a personal injury attorney experienced in the insurance claims process and litigation. The playing field then becomes level. Why? Because now you pose a great deal more risk. Pino Certa has witnessed first hand settlement offers doubling, tripling, even quadrupling, after an experienced lawyer is obtained. While this situation is not fair, it is unfortunately the reality. That is why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer representing your interests.
