Profits Ahead of People

Posted By Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci || 6-Jan-2015

That’s where insurance company priorities lie. They are in the business of putting profits ahead of people. This is never more obvious than when a person is in a Jasper County car accident and sustains a traumatic brain injury that can require surgery, long-term treatment and rehabilitative therapies.

That is precisely when an insurance company will try to wriggle out of its responsibility: when a seriously injured person needs medical coverage the most.

In the case of a traumatic brain injury (TBI), there are so many things for a family to deal with at once. First and foremost, there is the injury to their loved one and the deep concern and worry about what the future might hold.

How long will it take for the injured to recover? Will there be changes? Will they be able to resume their career or schooling? Who will pay for all the expensive care the loved one needs?

These questions and many more are common as a family deals with TBI caused to a loved one by a negligent driver, property owner, business or doctor.

Insurance companies often prey on worried families, pressuring them to agree to settlements that can temporarily alleviate concerns, but come back to haunt families facing long-term costs and medical bills much bigger than ever expected.
