WHEN THE INSURANCE COMPANY CALLS

Is it possible to give too much information to the insurance company? Following an accident, you may get a call from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. They have questions and they want answers. If you receive one of these phone calls, you will be asked about the accident: how the accident occurred, your perspective, and for all the details on your injuries. When dealing with anyone from an insurance company, it’s important to keep in mind that they are looking for “holes” or issues with your version of events. You want compensation for damages and injuries. You have bills to pay and want to get on with your life. The insurance company wants to pay you as little as possible — or even deny your claim if they can. Here’s the thing: Adjusters listen closely to everything you say. They will have a transcription of your conversation. They are looking for admission of fault or anything that may be interpreted as an admission of fault. This gives them the ammunition they need to say “no” to you. To complicate things further, if you admit — or your words are twisted to admit — that you were at least 50% at fault, Texas law lets the insurance company deny your claim. Another thing to keep in mind is that once the adjuster has asked their questions, they may offer you a cash settlement upfront. All you have to do is to confirm that you will not file a future claim related to your current injuries. You have to sign away that right. Once you sign on the dotted line and accept the cash, your claim is officially over. Should you need any more medical intervention related to your injuries, that’s on you. One last thing to keep in mind is that the adjuster may also ask for medical authorization to access your medical records. They want to verify your injuries, but as you might have guessed, they are once again looking for details they can use to reduce your claim amount. Your best bet is to say no and speak with an attorney. What to Watch Out For When They Ask Questions

3 Marvel Movies to Watch Out For

For the past 10 years, Marvel movies have delighted families and comic book nerds alike with their memorable characters, incredible action scenes, and sprawling, interconnected storylines. The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is the story of the Avengers so far, told through 23 movies. Even though this year marked the end of a massive arc that Marvel Studios dubbed “The Infinity Saga,” there are still more movies coming out that will feature everyone’s favorite heroes. Here are a few films coming up next in the MCU. A Black Widow Solo Movie International assassin Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson, was the first female member of the Avengers and made her debut appearance in “Iron Man 2.” She never got her own movie, but Marvel announced recently that a Black Widow movie is officially in the works for the next phase of Marvel movies. Besides the fact that they’ve started filming, there’s not much information about it yet. But for many excited fans, this movie has been a long time coming. ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, and the gang are all back in the third installment of this smash-hit franchise. Without getting into too much detail, “Avengers: Endgame” and the post-credits scene of the second “Guardians” movie provided some clues about the plot and possible main villain. Though details are slim, “Vol. 3” is sure to be another rollicking ride through the cosmos. ‘Black Panther 2’ “Black Panther” was immensely popular (it earned nearly $700 billion domestically), and its success removed all doubt that there would be a sequel. Audiences will journey back to Wakanda and see the newest adventures of King T’Challa and crew, although not much is known about the plot or the release date as of now. But you can rest assured that the creative minds behind the sequel are taking their time to make it as good as the first. The future storyline of the MCU is up in the air, but, if the previous movies are any indicator, families, fans, and audiences everywhere have a lot to look forward to.
