You know you've been hurt. You know that you should receive damages for your injuries. However, the insurance company which is responsible for paying you those damages is unlikely to just hand them over.
Why the Insurance Company is Involved
In most cases, the owner of the property on which you fell carries property insurance. For example, if you fell at a friend's home then that friend likely has homeowner's insurance. In many cases, homeowner's insurance is responsible for paying the damages related to your injuries.
Why the Insurance Companies Fight Your New York Slip and Fall Claim
While the insurance company may be legally obligated to pay your claim, it is unlikely to do so without a fight. Insurance companies make money by taking in premiums and paying out as little as possible in insurance claims. In other words, every dollar that they don't pay you becomes profit for them.
