When you’ve been involved in an auto accident that was not your fault, you need access to an expert Washington State car accident lawyer. A personal injury lawyer at Chris Jackman Law Firm is standing by to take your call and discuss your case with you. We’re here to help you navigate the tricky terrain of filing a winning claim against theSeattle’s Own Pemco Insurance
Founded in 1949, Pemco has risen to become one of the most successful insurance agencies in the Northwest, providing auto, home, and other kinds of coverage to Washington State and Oregon residents. An acronym for Public Employees Mutual Insurance Company, Pemco has garnered a good reputation for quality customer service by providing policies that lean towards the “preferred risk” category—which means policy owners who take precautions and are among the least likely to experience accidents.
With only 510 employees, in 2017 Pemco Insurance had a total revenue of $458.4 million.Getting Top Dollar for Your Claim
While Pemco Insurance is considered to be a worthy Seattle business that has won awards for their customer service, you still need to exercise due diligence and be as careful as possible when making a claim against a Pemco Insurance policy holder. Just like the huge corporate auto insurance agencies, Pemco Insurance benefits by minimizing cash payouts on auto accident claims. Therefore, they will in all likelihood exercise every angle they can to diminish the amount of your settlement.
To obtain maximum payout of an auto accident insurance claim you need an experienced and effective lawyer. Without professional legal representation, the Pemco Insurance claims adjuster will take advantage of your lack of knowledge regarding the law. Most likely you are not aware of all the areas in which you have suffered that you can cite as damages in your claim. In many cases, the damage to the vehicle is just the tip of the iceberg.
Add to this: medical expenses, time missed from work – which equals lost pay, time and expense of seeing specialists and/or undergoing operations, emotional suffering resulting from the disturbance of the accident, and overt anxiety and depression – sometimes qualifying as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – which may hinder you from working, accomplishing normal every day activities, and enjoying your life. When you take into account all the ways you’ve been affected by the car accident you are looking at a major rupturing of your bank account and your life.
The bottom line is that having undergone an accident and multiple injuries due to the negligence of another driver means you deserve to be reimbursed for all your troubles. We at Chris Jackman Law Firm are 100% devoted to fighting for you, taking your case to trial if necessary.Winning the Game that Claims Adjusters Play
A Pemco Insurance claims adjuster is going to be as nice as pie and sweet as honey when you speak with them on the phone about your claim. They will approach you as if they are your friend and have your best interests in mind. The truth is, they don’t.
They will play nice and tell you that they want to get you a cash settlement as quickly as possible to cover your injuries. But all the while they are engaging you in an inviting demeanor, they are also asking you all sorts of questions, looking for cracks in your story, and trying to find any way possible to lay the blame on you – or at least minimize your claim.
The game is rigged because the claims adjusters know the law and, chances are, you don’t. That’s why you need a professional car accident attorney at Chris Jackman Law Firm to speak with the Pemco Insurance claims adjuster on your behalf. Why?
We have your best interests in mind. We don’t get paid unless you do. So we are naturally inclined to engage in legal warfare, using all the ammunition and strategy we have to influence the best settlement amount possible for your claim.
