Delay and Denial Tactics From Insurers


The experienced personal injury lawyers with Burwell Nebout Trial Lawyers have the expertise, experience and financial resources to take on major insurance companies and to eliminate tactics that might otherwise greatly reduce the value of your claim, including:

  • Repeated delays and excuses to discourage your pursuit of the best possible compensation and to run out the clock on your claim
  • Discounting the physical damages done to vehicles or suggesting that prior damages existed
  • Questioning the extent and likely long-term effects of injuries
  • Attempting to shift some or all of the blame for the accident onto you

Insurance adjusters have high case volumes, and they minimize car accident claims daily. Their job is to pay you as little as possible. Your claim simply will not stand out to them if you do not have aggressive legal representation on your side.

FELA/Worker Injury

A 15-year machinist for Union Pacific Railroad was injured when a locomotive coupled into his blue flagged locomotive in the diesel shop at Union Pacific’s Houston facility. Although the machinist failed to engage the shop derails and acknowledge the track alarm, the contention was that Union Pacific employee took one minute and forty-four second water break during a walk around prior to the coupling.

During this water break, the machinist blue flagged his locomotive and began working. Burwell Nebout filed suit against Union Pacific Railroad in Harris County. After a two-week trial in the 157th District Court in Harris County, the jury awarded the machinist $566,105. The jury determined that Union Pacific Railroad violated the federal regulation that absolutely prohibits coupling into a blue flagged locomotive.
