Dealing with the Insurance Adjuster: Don't Talk to a Lawyer

Comments Off

This month, we will be looking at the issue of dealing with the insurance adjuster. I am amazed at how poorly consumers are treated and what things they are told. If you have a claim, I would suggest to you the advantage of meeting with an experienced personal injury lawyer to understand all of your rights. The insurance company may seem to be treating you correctly, but they don't represent you. They also are not lawyers, so don't take your legal advice from them.

They make an offer and spend time talking about why you shouldn’t run it by a lawyer. The claim is that the lawyer will just take it. That is very unlikely, but if the offer was really fair, the lawyer will probably tell you that. We have no problem meeting with people and saying the deal makes sense. The reality is, they don’t want you talking because it is more likely we will explain to you how unfair the offer is.

For the adjusters who are reading this and saying this isn’t them, I am glad to hear it. You are doing your job.

If you, your family, or someone you know is in an accident, it is worth taking the time to sit down and talk to an experienced law firm with success in helping people who are injured through no fault of their own. The consultations are free and it allows you to figure out what rights you have after an injury.
