SECRET #1—CNA Uses COMPUTERS to Decide Your Fate!
Like so many insurance companies these days, CNA uses a claim estimation program called Colossus, which makes “objective” recommendations for payouts based on limited information. Anyone who has suffered through a serious car or truck accident knows that their pain and suffering is ANYTHING but objective! Yet CNA adjusters plug information into a computer and it spits out a number—which you can bet is embarrassingly low.
Too many people think they just have to take whatever they are offered without realizing that the offer came from a computer, and not from a human being. Know this – you do NOT have to take the numbers that the CNA computers “spit out” at you. The truth is that a computer should NEVER be used to evaluate a serious injury claim, and CNA handles many serious trucking accident claims – claims which often result in the most catastrophic and life-changing injuries.
SECRET #2 – The more serious the claim, the more tricks CNA will use against you!
All types of businesses—including many commercial trucking companies and truck drivers—carry CNA insurance policies. Dealing with large commercial insurers can make for a MUCH different experience than filing a claim against a regular car insurance policy. Because the amount at stake is much higher in a trucking accident commercial insurance policy, CNA and its adjusters will use every trick in the book to limit what they have to pay out.
After a truck accident, the claim process can be MUCH HARDER. You’ll need to know what caused the accident and who was at fault. Then you’ll need to decide if you should file a claim against the truck driver, the trucking company, or both. It’s necessary to have a HIGHLY EXPERIENCED truck accident lawyer helping you from the very start, so you can get your case started off on the right foot.
CNA adjusters know commercial vehicle crashes are complicated and they will often try to use that against you and in favor of their clients. But even if CNA and their clients admit the accident was their fault, a BIG part of any commercial insurance claim is to get CNA to make a fair offer. This is the real challenge, as CNA is known for making RIDICULOUSLY LOW offers “out of the gate.” This is one reason why you should never consider accepting an initial settlement offer from CNA without first carefully reviewing it with an attorney who has insider info and decades of experience in dealing with them.
SECRET #3 – Sometimes You Just Have To File A Lawsuit!
CNA may simply refuse to make an offer you deserve. You may need to file a lawsuit to get paid. You need the right lawyer on your side who will aggressively fight for your rights and who knows how to get companies like CNA to back down.
The good news is that some commercial insurers may want to avoid lawsuits more than a typical personal automobile insurance carrier. The reasons for this are several: First – there is often a lot more coverage and therefore, a lot more risk on a commercial truck policy than a personal auto policy. Juries are often emotionally affected by traumatic truck accident stories and can award high amounts at trial. Also, many trucking companies don’t want to go to court, so they pressure CNA to make a reasonable offer to settle the case without a lawsuit. Sometimes this is because there may be “dirt” on the driver of the truck that they don’t want to come out. Remember that an experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to find that dirt, and use it against the Defendants to help get the highest recovery possible.
Finally, commercial truck accident claims tend to involve A LOT MORE MONEY than regular auto accident claims. We know that these adjusters are used to dealing with higher dollar amounts when it comes to settlement offers. Companies accept that commercial truck claims may cost them more and may not put as much pressure on adjusters to keep payouts low, particularly in attorney represented cases. For all of these reasons, WE KNOW that negotiating a favorable settlement with CNA is a possibility—especially with the right attorney on your side.
