How Insurance Companies Scheme You
Mark Grimm:Give me an example of one of the schemes, as you put it, that they might try.
Jim Parrish: Well the insurance adjusters will call people who have been hurt in an accident, and they act like they're their friend. They tell them, "Hey I'm really sorry this happened. And we're gonna take care of you. We just need you to sign these forms, and we'll gather all your medical records, and we'll do everything for you. You just concentrate on getting better. And let us know when you're ready, and we'll make you a fair settlement offer." What they don't tell them is that in Virginia, where I practice, there is a two year statute of limitations. If they don't file their claim or settle within two years, then any claim they have is barred. And I had a lady that came to me two days before her statute of limitations was going to expire. She had had a rapport with the adjuster. He had told her time and time again how he was her friend. He just kept getting better. Finally she learned about this statute of limitations. She called him and said, "Mike"; they were on a first name basis...
Mark Grimm:Hey buddy, how come you haven't told me this is about to expire?
Jim Parrish: ...Why didn't you tell me about this? And then the tone of the conversation changed. And he said, "its your job to know the law, its not my job to tell you." So fortunately we saved her claim...
Mark Grimm: Her answer was well I have Jim Parrish on my side, buddy, so bring it on.
Jim Parrish: Well that's exactly right. We settled that claim, and we settled for a heck of a lot more than they would have paid her otherwise.
