Personal Injury Claims & Insurers

Have you been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence? If so, it may seem as if your world has suddenly turned upside down. Before the injury, you were working, enjoying life, and feeling great. Now you’re in pain, unable to work, and worried about how you’ll pay that mounting stack of medical bills while also still providing for your family. 

If this situation sounds familiar, you may have filed an insurance claim, hoping to recover the compensation you desperately needed to move forward with your life, only to be told by the insurer that your claim was "exaggerated." What does that mean? And what rights do you have? These are important questions to ask, and at Morgan and Morgan, we’re here to help you understand the answers. 

Who Files a False Claim?

First, it’s important to understand that, unfortunately, there are dishonest people in the world. Sometimes, people do file claims that are either entirely false or that are greatly exaggerated. This can happen when:

  • Some people injure themselves and falsely blame that injury on another person.
  • Some people pretend their injuries are worse than they actually are;
  • Some people stage accidents entirely, even when they didn’t actually occur;
  • Some people inflate their medical bills;
  • Some people pretend they can’t work when they actually can;
  • And the list goes on.

Unfortunately, some people do these things. By doing so, they not only put themselves in a place where they may face legal consequences, but they also create unnecessary difficulty for those filing legitimate claims for legitimate injuries. 

What Effect Can This Have on My Claim?

Sometimes, an insurance company may review your claim and tell you it was exaggerated—and many times, this simply isn’t the case at all. Understandably, if you are an honest person who was truly injured, you need and deserve compensation for those injuries. To be told that your claim is exaggerated can be extremely frustrating. Instead of getting frustrated, though, you should seek help. 

At Morgan and Morgan, that’s why we’re here. We understand the anger and frustration of claimants who were injured through no fault of their own, and who deserve recovery. We also understand insurance companies—how they operate, and the best strategies to use on your behalf in response. We’re here to help.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
