Protecting You From Unfair Treatment by Insurance Companies

Insurance companies are “for profit” businesses, who answer to investors more than they do to policy holders. When you are speaking to an insurance adjuster or an investigator from the insurance company, his or her goal is to minimize the amount the insurance company will have to pay on your motor vehicle accident claim, possibly even denying your claim.

At the Orzoff Law Offices we act immediately to protect our client’s interests. Our personal injury attorneys review all communications, documents and settlement offers to ensure you don’t sign or say anything that could jeopardize your right to full and fair compensation for your losses.

After a car accident, truck accident or motorcycle accident with serious injuries, or after the death of a loved one, working with an experienced personal injury lawyer can reduce the stress and confusion over what you need to do next. We handle all the details so you can focus on your family and your recovery. Contact our Northbrook law office today and schedule a free consultation.

Calculating Your Financial Losses After a Motor Vehicle Accident

Most insurance companies use a claims program called “Colossus” to calculate the value of a motor vehicle accident claim. The amount calculated by Colossus depends on the information entered by the claims agent and on the pre-set algorithms of the program itself. Insurance companies teach claims adjusters how to “control costs” when entering information in order to reduce settlement amounts.

As a result, the insurance company doesn’t consider your pain and suffering and other non-economic issues that could have a significant effect on your quality of life. At the Orzoff Law Offices, our attorneys expose the shortcomings of Colossus. Working with medical and rehabilitation experts, economists and life care planners, we conduct our own cost-data analyses to provide an accurate assessment of the costs you have incurred and will incur from a motor vehicle accident.

Other Types of Motor Vehicle Accident Claims

  • If you were injured as a pedestrian or bicyclist, we will review all available insurance options to see where you can bring a claim.
  • If you were hit by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you will be bringing a claim against your own insurance company under your uninsured/underinsured motorist policy.
  • If you were injured on a public bus, railroad or other form of public transit, your claim may be against an insurance company or against a municipality.
  • If a drunk driver was at fault, we investigate whether you have a dram shop claim against the establishment that served the alcohol.
