Your Advocates In Insurance Coverage Disputes

You’ve been paying insurance premiums for years. However, when an accident occurs and injuries result, it can be difficult to get insurance companies to pay out the benefits you have spent years paying for. Having a professional on your side during discussions and negotiations with your insurance agent can have a dramatic effect on the outcome.

From law offices in Billings, Towe, Ball, Mackey, Sommerfeld & Turner, PLLP, has been helping individuals throughout eastern Montana obtain the insurance benefits they need to pay for medical treatments and make up for lost wages for almost 50 years. We understand the most effective ways to meet the challenge of dealing insurance adjusters, including the following:

  • Immediately after an accident or any cause for a claim for insurance benefits, do not make a statement or sign a waiver before getting legal counsel. Do not admit fault, but rather, get in touch with a lawyer who can skillfully protect your rights.
  • As much as you are able after a crash, start gathering evidence right away. Take photos of the scene of the accident. Keep track of where your wrecked car is towed. Get contact information for eyewitnesses whose reports may be important later.
  • Be a proactive consumer and pay attention to expenses you will need to account for. For example, do research on typical repair costs before accepting an insurance company’s settlement offer. Will the offered benefits be enough to cover your losses? Find out and together with your attorney, stand up for your right to appropriate compensation.

Let An Experienced Lawyer Face Your Insurance Company On Your Behalf

Dealing with insurance companies can be difficult. It can be a shock to feel like your own insurance company is working against your interests. If your insurance company has denied your claim or undervalued your losses, we can help. If you have not yet communicated with your insurance company following an accident, we recommend you contact us first. Once we take your case, we will take over communicating with the insurance company while you focus on recovery from your injuries and losses.

At Towe, Ball, Mackey, Sommerfeld & Turner, PLLP, we know what our clients’ cases are worth, and our attorneys won’t let our clients get bullied into accepting a settlement offer that doesn’t fairly compensate them for their injuries. Without representation, it is likely that an insurance company will put pressure on you and try to convince you to accept less than you deserve.

Our attorneys are experienced litigators. We aren’t afraid to go to court to protect our clients’ rights to compensation. Our lawyers have taken cases all the way to the Montana Supreme Court. Because insurance companies know our firm takes clients’ cases seriously, they often present larger compensation offers that make the time and costs of litigation unnecessary.
