Some Common Auto Insurance Misconceptions
Understanding these myths can help you to understand how insurance works. You also need to remember that insurance companies are focused on protecting their bottom line and profits and not necessarily on ensuring that injured victims get full coverage for their losses. As such, you need to be careful in your dealings with an insurer after an auto accident and you may wish to be represented by an experienced attorney who can help you to ensure you get what you are entitled to from the insurer.
