Insurance companies are always hesitant to pay out a claim for a plaintiff who needs surgery but hasn’t had the surgery yet. They generally have a good idea of what a case is worth when a plaintiff has actually had the surgery and doesn’t want to overpay for the claim.
The last thing an insurance company wants to do is give a plaintiff a settlement claim for surgery costs and pain and suffering and then the victim doesn’t have the surgery. Insurance adjusters have actually lost their jobs over this because of cost the insurance company more money than they needed to.
