Our firm is often contacted by prospective clients who have been injured in a car accident, who are fed up to deal with an insurance adjuster on their own. The problem is that many of these people have already said all the wrong things to the adjuster, and have damaged their case beyond all repairs. To help you avoid the same fate, this article will explain what you can say to an insurance adjuster.
Be Smart: Get an Attorney
All the situations that you make the experience when you are involved in an accident cannot all be discussed throughout this article. The most important piece of advice that we can offer you is to hire an attorney from the beginning.
The role of an insurance adjusters
Insurance adjusters aren’t there to help you; they are not your friend. They are there to help the insurance company. Thousands of our former clients and other individuals have told us stories of insurance adjusters lying or misleading them, resulting in a lot of lost time, heartache, and money. Every dime they give you is money directly out of their profits; they will find all possible ways to limit the money they payout.
Things you can say
There’s nothing wrong with telling an insurance adjuster were, the date, and the time of day the accident happened. There is nothing wrongful with telling the insurance adjuster what kind of car you drive, and who your insurance carrier is. You just don’t want to tell them anything about your injury. Insurance adjusters will use all the information that you give them to create a defense to your recovery efforts, don’t be subject to this.
What if the info I’m telling the insurance adjuster is harmless?
Do you have a legal issue or question?
If we had a dime for every time we were told something was harmless but wrecked their case, we’d be rich. Most of our clients are intelligent, hard-working people. However, since you’ve likely never experienced a legal case such as this, don’t make the assumption you can wing it. Every word that you say is significant to an insurance adjuster. The questions that they ask are designed so that they elicit information that is only helpful to them.
The last thing you can and always should tell an insurance adjuster is that they’ll have to talk to my attorney. Our best cases for our clients are where we’re hired from the beginning and client doesn’t have to talk to the insurance adjuster at all. If you have been injured as a result of an accident don’t just hire an attorney, hire the attorneys with experience, past success, and the ability to win your claim.
