5 Things an Insurance Adjuster Won’t Tell You
After a car crash, or any other type of motor vehicle accident, victims will often be working with their insurance companies to cover the damages and medical expenses incurred from the incident.
However, it is important to understand that insurance companies do not always have the victim’s best interest in mind.
So, if you have been involved in a car accident, there are a few things you should know that an insurance adjuster will likely not tell you. Check out the list below, so you can be prepared if you are ever in a position that requires you to work and negotiate with an insurance company after a personal injury accident.
1. Don’t provide a recorded statement and refrain from providing any details in regard to your injuries without speaking with an attorney first. Any of these mistakes can be used against you when settling your case.
2. You could be entitled to receive more compensation than just medical bills, vehicle repair damage, and lost wages. In fact, an attorney may be able to get you pain and suffering compensation and more.
3. You may not have to pay your medical bills upfront or out of pocket. And an attorney may be able to work with your medical providers regarding billing.
4. Hire an attorney who specializes in personal injury accidents to represent you. Never try to negotiate a claim alone against a large and powerful insurance company.
5. Do not accept the insurance company’s first settlement offer. While it may be tempting to get your money quickly, this first offer is often usually entirely too low. It is important to be patient and wait for the compensation you deserve.
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, do not attempt to settle your case with the insurance company alone. A professional and experienced law firm, like Chaffin Luhana, can get you the compensation you deserve after an accident. Contact an attorney today for a free case review.
