Insurance companies aren't really in the business of protecting you

helpingha nds.jpgThe most misleading claim insurance companies make is that caring for you is their number one objective.

While some insurance companies are better than others, the truth is that their number one objective must be returning a profit to its shareholders.

Thus, no matter how you look at it, your interests and their interests must part company.

At Schmitt Mulhern, our success is anchored to this understanding. It has helped us become a leader to clients in both Missouri and Kansas in the difficult task of getting insurance companies to keep the promises they made.

The good news

The good news is that, in many insurance disputes, the law is behind you. Tort law has been since the Middle Ages, with its radical proposition - that the little guy (you) - have equal standing under the law as the party that wronged you.

At Schmitt Mulhern, we bring three strengths to representing your interests:

1. We've been doing this for a combined 75 years. After a while, you get really good at it. We are respected by the courts and by the other side, and we are proud of that.

2. We know how insurance companies think. They are not evil, but neither do they exist in order to look out for you. They are after the best deal they can get for their investors. Our job is to make that best deal expensive.

3. We stay abreast of case law. These are all the millions of legal precedents, some of which have a bearing on your case. Our scholarship is a powerful resource when you are going up against insurance company lawyers.
