Over the past couple decades, insurance companies have increased their aggressive tactics of delaying their own customer’s settlements over injury claim payments. This tactic is used as a tool for large insurance companies in the hopes a claimant will be forced to settle for far less than a fair market value for their injury claims. This of course adds billions of dollars to the already deep pockets of the insurance industry, while only piling onto the financial hardships of the consumer.
Luckily for consumers, consumer legal funding began offering its services in the great state of Georgia several years ago, and has helped thousands of consumers bridge the gap between greedy, absent insurance companies, and their mounting personal expenses.
Unfortunately for consumers, the large pocketed insurance companies along with their multi-million dollar advocacy group from Washington D.C., The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, are trying to eliminate the business of consumer legal funding altogether.
This would be terrible news for the many Georgians who have relied on consumer legal funding to help them through tough financial times after enduring an automobile accident, often an accident that is at no fault of their own. These accidents often leave the consumer injured, unable to work and without a paycheck.
It is people like Stephen and his family from Conyers, Georgia who desperately needed a financial boost after his automobile accident who wouldn’t have a place to turn if consumer legal funding was eliminated. “With [Consumer legal funding’s] help we finally got to pay off bill and utilities. Thank You.”
The same can be said for Zacala from Decatur, Georgia who was involved in a horrific accident, had a bad experience with the insurance company, but luckily found a legal funding company to help. “Being in a car accident is difficult but losing a loved one is worse. [Consumer legal funding] helped me pay off some debt collected during these trying times.”
Consumer legal funding is always there to help those who need it most, especially when an insurance company is absent and trying to pad their deep pockets at the expense of the consumer. To eliminate consumer legal funding in Georgia would be a terrible disservice to people like Stephen and Zacala, and to the thousands of other consumers who rely on the important services consumer legal funding provides.
