Today’s blog is about a new policy that we have developed in our office to try to help our injury clients. It is called the 30 day rule. This means that when we send the medical records over to the insurance company we usually say you have a certain period of time to respond to us. Then almost always they say, “Well, we want more time. We want the records from every day that your client was born up until the present time.”
There is a debate as to how much time to give the insurance company to make an offer. We know clients get frustrated and deservedly so because the insurance company is playing this delay game. They delay so they can keep the money when it should be going to you as the victim of an injury.
So we started a new policy that is called the 30 day rule. If the client allows it, we give a strict 30 days to the insurance company to respond to our demand. If they do not respond within that 30 days, we file the lawsuit within a couple days of that. Once the client gives us that okay, the lawsuit will be filed for them.
We find our rule forces the insurance companies to take your case much more seriously. They know that we have followed up on it just like we said we would do by filing suit. It is our way of trying to increase the value of your case and to get you a higher settlement in a faster way. Questions about this blog? Call me at 412-281-8700.
Our main focus is honesty. We always preach it. We are passionate about trying to help you! And we care!
