SECRET #1—CNA Uses COMPUTERS to Calculate Your Potential Settlement and Financial Fate!
Like so many insurance companies these days, CNA uses a claim estimation program called Colossus. This automated system makes “objective” recommendations for settlement payments based on the limited information entered by the adjuster. Anyone who has suffered through a serious car or truck accident knows that their pain and suffering are ANYTHING but objective! Yet CNA adjusters plug information into a computer, and it spits out a number—which you can bet is shockingly low.
Too many people think they just have to accept whatever amount they are offered without realizing that the offer came from a computer and not from a human being. Now you know – you do NOT have to take the offer that the CNA claim computers “spit out” at you. The truth is that a computer should NEVER be used to evaluate a serious injury claim. This is especially important at CNA insurance companies because they handle many serious trucking accident claims, which often result in the most catastrophic and life-changing injuries possible.
SECRET #2 – The More Serious Your CNA Claim, the More Tricks They Will Play to Avoid Payment!
All types of businesses—including many commercial trucking companies and truck drivers—carry CNA insurance coverage. Dealing with large commercial insurers makes filing a CNA accident claim a MUCH different experience than filing a claim against a smaller car insurance company. Because the coverage amount is much higher in a trucking accident commercial insurance policy, CNA and its adjusters will use every trick in the book to limit the amount they have to pay you.
After a truck accident, the claim process can be MUCH MORE COMPLICATED. 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, both, or another entity. It’s necessary to have a HIGHLY EXPERIENCED truck accident lawyer helping you from the very start, so you can start your case 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 insurance companies and their policyholders admit the accident was their fault, a large 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 almost never accept an initial settlement offer on your CNA claim without first carefully reviewing it with an attorney who knows your legal rights and has decades of experience in dealing with them.
SECRET #3 – Sometimes You Just Have To File A Lawsuit to Fairly Resolve Your CNA Claim
A CNA claims adjuster may simply refuse to make an offer you deserve. You may need to file a lawsuit to recover your losses. You need a dedicated 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 want to avoid lawsuits more than a typical personal automobile insurance carrier. There are several reasons for this. First, there is often a lot more coverage involved in a commercial accident claim and, therefore, a lot more risk on a commercial truck policy than on 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 with CNA insurance coverage don’t want to go to court, so they pressure CNA Insurance to make a reasonable offer to settle the case without a lawsuit. Sometimes this is because there may be “dirt” on the truck driver that they don’t want to be exposed. Or the trucking company may have a long history of accidents they want to keep quiet. An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to find that dirt and use it against the Defendants to help negotiate for 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 claims where the injury victim is represented by an attorney. 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.
