9 Ways To Avoid Getting Duped By Insurance Company Settlement Tactics

Every now and then, not often, but once in a while, you run across a truly outstanding informational resource online.

An authoritative, in-depth, well-researched, and well-written piece that was put together by an obvious industry expert.

It’s the kind of thing you bookmark so you’ll always know right where to find it when the day comes that you just might need it.

That is exactly the type of information that TriMark Legal Funding likes to provide for our clients and visitors every day.

What follows is a tremendous article by Portland Attorney Travis Mayor.

Travis launched his legal career at a large personal injury insurance defense firm in Oregon. Travis negotiated on behalf of clients in both state and federal court. As an insurance defense attorney, Travis gained a wealth of valuable experience and meaningful insight into how the insurance industry defends itself in personal injury claims. Then he leveraged this experience and opened his own personal injury firm in Portland, Oregon.

Travis’ insight is invaluable to his clients in Portland, but TriMark serves a nationwide clientele. With the exception of where Travis cites Oregon statutes, we felt that this article could be highly beneficial to personal injury victims throughout the United States, so we are featuring it here.

Alleged road rage driver killed in crash near Flagstaff

IDIOT ALERT:

In addition to causing his own untimely demise AND inducting himself into the “Idiot Driver” Hall of Fame, Mr. Jack Kimball of Flagstaff, Arizona is also this week’s recipient of the Dumb-Dumb of the Week Award for proving, once again, that Forrest Gump’s mama was right; Stupid IS As Stupid Does.

Police are investigating a traffic death as a possible road rage incident in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Just after 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, deputies with the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area of Townsend-Winona Road and Oakwood Pines for reports of a two-vehicle crash.

Once deputies arrived on the scene they located a Ford Explorer and a Chevy Equinox as the vehicles involved.

Deputies rendered life-saving measures on the driver of the Explorer

Two killed in crash, including a Memphis police officer

Two are dead, including a Memphis police officer, after an early morning crash on Shelby Drive.

The Memphis Police Department said the MPD officer who was involved died at Regional One. The driver of the other vehicle died at the scene.

The crash happened around 2:30 a.m. Thursday at East Shelby Drive and Pleasant Hill. MPD said the officer was driving eastbound on East Shelby Dr. when another vehicle traveling northbound on Pleasant Hill hit the officer’s squad car.

Due to this being a deadly crash involving an on-duty officer, the Tennessee Highway Patrol is conducting the investigation.

The Memphis Police Association identified the officer killed as Officer Corille Jones.

2021 was the deadliest on Washington roads in 15 years

As Washington went quiet in the early days of the pandemic, Staci Hoff figured at least it would mean fewer deaths on the roads in 2020. She was wrong.

Then, as cars began returning in 2021, she hoped maybe the carnage would slow as congestion increased and speeds decreased. She was wrong again.

Washington ended 2021 with more fatal and serious car crashes than it’s seen in 15 years. On the heels of an especially deadly 2020, the continued rise is a frustrating and increasingly confounding trend that’s playing out nationwide. Experts can’t point to a single reason.

“We have talked 2020 to death, but it is the end of 2021 and this was way worse,” said Hoff, research director for the Washington Traffic Safety

Injured In A Car Accident? Your Legal Adversary Is Artificial Intelligence

Attorney Jack Cohen knows both sides of the blame and claim game. He’s spent nearly 40 years practicing law, much of it trying injury suits for insurance companies. But he’s also written a novel called “Bad Faith,” which tells the story from the victim’s side.

Cohen knows his limitations—you can’t fight artificial intelligence (AI). You have to work with it. When he gets a new case, he sits down at his computer and goes straight to Lex Machina—Latin legalese for “Law Machine” and a company that provides litigation data and analytics.

Artificial intelligence has profoundly changed the legal landscape in ways almost incomprehensible to people injured in car accidents and forced into the court system each year by unfortunate and hurtful circumstances. “Injured in an accident? We can help,” blare the televised legal ads, followed by the multimillion-dollar settlements they’ve won.

In many cases it’s artificial intelligence—rather than your lawyer—that could determine how much your injury, pain, suffering and, perhaps, disability is worth. And unlike your sympathetic attorney, AI is a merciless
