When you become injured in a car accident, insurance companies begin to work immediately at attempting to minimize your claim. They may try to suggest that you were at fault. They may accept their driver caused the accident, but try to downplay your injuries. They may even attempt to flat out deny you any coverage. Insurance companies are interested in protecting their profits, not your health.
