Dealing with Insurance Companies

Avoid Settling for Less – Put Us on Your Side

You make payments on your insurance policies each month, so when you get in an accident, it seems right to assume that your coverage will do what it is supposed to do – cover your losses. Unfortunately, the insurance world isn’t always quite so black and white. The truth is that insurance companies do not treat you fairly and are often out to pay you the lowest possible amount. So what can you do?

Most importantly, remember that you’re not alone. At Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP, we act as the mediators our clients need when dealing with insurance companies. Our San Jose ​personal injury lawyers have over eight decades of combined experience and are the recipients of numerous accolades for the results we’ve achieved over the years.

We want to hear about your case! Tell us the details by using our online contact form or by calling us at (800) 900-0863.

Quick Settlements are Rarely Favorable Settlements

Offering an early settlement is a common tactic used by insurance adjusters. Dazzled by the supposedly high amount of money, you accept and think nothing of it. Accident victims may be surprised to know that a quick settlement is often the lowest and is actually far less than what you deserve. Simply put, you need an aggressive advocate in your corner who will fight for your rights.

Our firm can assist you throughout the settlement process by:

  • Making sense of the insurance laws as they apply to your case
  • Evaluating your current insurance benefits to maximize your coverage
  • Conducting all negotiations with your insurance company
  • Pursuing the highest settlement possible

We know that insurance laws are complex and difficult to understand while also trying to recover from your injuries. Our firm is capable of handling the details of your case, giving you the chance to regain a sense of normalcy in your day-to-day.

Protect your rights with a San Jose injury attorney!

Rather than letting a powerful insurance company push you around, take a stand for the justice you deserve. We are on your side and know that your case matters. With powerful resources and a thorough understanding of personal injury claims in California, our firm can represent you beginning the moment you call.

Find out what Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP can do for you by calling us today at (800) 900-0863. We look forward to pursuing the outcome you need.
