Relief From the Worry of Not Knowing What's Going On


 
SettlementCentral.Com will offers subscribed members a relatively painless education in the process of filing and settling insurance claims. First, of course, it is important that you get the treatment you need. After you are healed - or as healed as your body is going to get - is the right time to begin settlement negotiations.

One of the quickest ways to feel comfortable with the process involved in insurance claims is to become comfortable with the language. Many words take on specific DefinitionsGo to DEFINITIONS when used in insurance claim forms. Time spent checking out what some of the words are going to mean can save a lot of confusion later.

For example, are these words and phrases familiar to you?
 
tortfeasor   negligence
subrogation liability
statutes of limitations first party
third party fault
pain and suffering settlement
PIP full, fair and final

If you're like most people, some are familiar and some are not. Within the insurance industry, however, each of those words or phrases means something very specific. For example, a "full, fair andfinal" offer from an insurance company usually means they really hope it can be the final offer, and they really hope you see it as fair, because it is as much as they want to have to pay you.

In the Rules of the Game,Go to RULES OF THE GAME you will learn that such an offer is not necessarily fair or final. As described in the Auto Accident Injury area,Go to AUTO ACCIDENT INJURY: WHAT CAN YOU DO? keeping a Confidential Personal DiaryGo to PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM DIARY is an excellent idea. Adding notes to that Confidential Personal Diary every day will help you when it comes time to answer questions later about how long something bothered you. Or when did you first notice something else. Or when did you start back to work, and when did you last a whole day at work without pain? What questions do you have, and - when you find out - what are the answers to those questions?

Remember, too, that you don't need to know everything at once. You only have to do one or two things at a time. Then move on to the next. Some people (dare we say including insurance adjusters?) would like you to think the process is very complicated and far too difficult for you to be bothered with.

We here at SettlementCentral.Comwould like to remind you that a great deal of what must be done is well within your abilities. For some people, for some injuries, you can do it all yourself. For others, taking care of as much as you can before contracting with an attorney can save you money.
