Columbus, Ohio. According to David A. Bressman, a personal injury lawyer who limits his practice exclusively those injured in car accidents, insurance companies use many standard arguments when trying to minimize payment to injury victims. Here is #8 in this ongoing series:
•The investigating police officer made errors in the report or erroneous conclusions that dispute
the your version of accident.
•The police were not called to the scene (inferring that it was just a minor accident).
•There was an "independent" witness who, likely, came to scene immediately after the crash but "knows" what happened.
•You id'd the wrong vehicle because the only reason you were hit was because another vehicle hit the at-fault driver's vehicle first even though there is no substantiating damage and even though you never saw this vehicle.
