Have You Been Hurt in an Accident and the Defendant Has Liberty Mutual?
Filing a claim after a car accident can be a difficult process. While you may assume the insurance company will automatically cover your damages, that’s often not the case. In some claims, insurance companies may attempt to give you the runaround. They may claim their driver is not the one responsible for the accident. Or an insurance adjuster could make a settlement offer worth significantly less than you really deserve.
If you’re dealing with Liberty Mutual Insurance following a car accident, you need quality legal support that will help you navigate the claims process. Contact the Liberty Mutual Insurance Claims Lawyers at Abels & Annes today to schedule your free consultation, or to learn more about how we can help you get your claim settled more effectively.

What Benefits Can Be Recovered from Liberty Mutual?
There are several types of damages that you may recover from Liberty Mutual after an accident. These may include:
Compensation for injuries. The primary function of an accident lawyer is to recover damages for your injuries. If your injury occurred in a car accident with a Liberty Mutual driver or if your injury occurred in the home of someone who has a Liberty Mutual insurance policy, you may be owed compensation for those injuries. This could include payment for your medical care, compensation for lost wages, and funds to cover pain and suffering.
Funeral and burial expenses. Unfortunately, it’s not unusual for wrecks and other types of accidents to lead to significant injuries and even death. If someone you love died in an accident, Liberty Mutual may be responsible for offering compensation for reasonable funeral and burial expenses for your loved one.
Property damages. Are you covered by Liberty Mutual? Did the individual who damaged your property have Liberty Mutual Insurance? When Liberty Mutual covers the individual responsible for property damage, you may be owed compensation through the insurance company for damages to your home or vehicle.
What Are Common Issues with Liberty Mutual Insurance Claims?
Like most insurance companies, Liberty Mutual is a for-profit business. As a result, the company may not always jump at the chance to pay out the full amount on any claim. Often, claimants need thorough evidence, documentation, and representation to fully collect on a policy. There are several strategies that Liberty Mutual may use to reduce their liability.
Arguing that someone else is responsible for your injuries
This tactic may include attempting to shift responsibility to you. Or an adjuster could try to implicate someone else in the case of your injuries. Working with a lawyer is usually the most effective way to determine who is really responsible for your injuries.
Lowball settlement offer
In many cases, Liberty Mutual, like other insurance companies, may provide a low initial settlement offer. This settlement offer may not cover the full amount of damages you may incur as a result of your injuries. Accepting an insufficient offer may leave you struggling to pay for your medical bills and other expenses.
Often, insurance adjusters will make an offer before your medical bills even begin to arrive. They will not explain to you that the offer is all inclusive and that you cannot reopen your case. They won’t explain to you other issues that may arise, such as medical liens or health insurance subrogation. Never accept an offer without consulting with an experienced Chicago accident attorney.
The claims process can frequently involve delays and complications. There could be requests for more information, or outright stalemates. Unfortunately, this can lead to significant financial problems on your part. You may be struggling to pay for medical bills, other expenses as a result of the accident, or your regular expenses during this difficult time.
