Involved in a Truck Accident on a Vancouver Freeway? Beware Colossus!

It sounds like something out of science fiction.

 

You just got into a truck accident on a Vancouver freeway, and you feel “turned about,” literally and metaphorically. You might be brain injured, bleeding, and overwhelmed. You might be tasked with an insurmountable series of to-dos—bills to pay, kids to care for, etc.

 

Point is: You have more than enough to do already.

 

But guess what? Like it or not, you may have to “square off” against a giant computer program that uses ridiculously complicated algorithms to minimize insurance claim payouts.

 

Weird but true. This program—code named "Colossus"—is basically the equivalent of a dozen barrels of insurance adjusters on steroids, multiplied by a million.

 

Here's the story.

 

During the late 1980s and early 1990s, insurers swallowed heavy losses following two massive hurricanes in the United States. Insurance industry bigwigs said "enough." They sought to replace their human adjusters with something more accurate: a giant computer.

 

The insurance gurus imported the Colossus project from Australia and then spent years refining it. In a different universe, Colossus might have been a good idea—a way to ensure total fairness. But it evolved into something quite different—a tool to reduce payouts to accident victims.

 

Today, 20% of insurers in the United States leverage Colossus. Who knows how many truck accident victims like you have gotten the short-end of the stick thanks to Colossus and its sister programs?

 

You can fight back. But first you need to recognize that you are in a battle.
