At Daspit Law Firm, our attorneys have been working for years and continuously advocate for those who were injured in an accident or due to another’s negligence. Part of this experience is due to our founding attorney, John Daspit’s, experience working as an insurance defense lawyer. He has previous fought to protect the interests of insurance companies, but now uses that insider knowledge to defend his clients and find financial recovery.
When trying to recover your damages, you will not be interacting directly with the individual, but with their insurance company. Not only is it required by law in most states, including Texas, but it also protects insurers by offering indemnification and legal services in the event of a lawsuit.
These are some examples of insurance carriers:
So, while you can try to “go after” someone who may have insurance if you were injured by them, they will more than likely rely on their insurance company for all correspondence. Unless, of course, the other person is not carrying insurance, you may need to file a claim with your own provider.
Most of the time, these companies are not too keen on paying out compensation, or at least, the amount that you deserve. They may try to reduce the culpability of their insured or argue that your injuries had nothing to do with the incident—any tactics to keep themselves off the hook.
It can be frustrating to work with insurance companies to make claims. They don’t move fast enough or may not take your claims seriously. Once you have a Corpus Christi personal injury lawyer on board, however, the game changes and they are now forced to pay due attention. This is one of the many reasons why our firm is here to help you. We are available around the clock—24 hours a day, 7 days a week—to answer your questions, and we do not charge any fees until you receive a proper settlement.

All too often, accident victims are steamrolled by insurance companies determined to minimize or deny their claims. Don't let this happen to you. Hire us to fight for the compensation you deserve.
