Over the last few years a common tactic by insurance companies is to try and assign “comparative fault” to a driver involved in an accident. I have seen many insurance companies try to blame drivers for 30% fault of an accident because they failed to anticipate someone running a stop sign or red light. Insurance companies use terms like “failure to keep a proper lookout” and other meaningless terms to try and support their ridiculous positions. Insurance companies do this to try and limit their damage exposure and until a lawyer sues them, they frequently do not change their “comparative fault” assessment.
If an insurance company is trying to tell you that you are comparatively or partially at-fault for an accident, please call Altman Law Offices for a free consultation. I am passionate about calling the insurance companies out on their legally flawed decisions. I have successfully sued many insurance companies on this issue and have had great success getting insurance companies to change their assessment and accept 100% fault for an accident.
