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 ask for releases that are too broad. If you give them a release to talk to your doctor, you may be severely hurting your case. They have gotten involved in care decisions they have no right to be part of. Remember, they are thinking about their money.
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.
