Do Not Settle with an Insurance Company After a Car Accident
Did a recent car accident leave you injured? Have you experienced extensive medical treatment and time off work? You may be concerned about how you will pay these unexpected medical bills or make up for lost pay. Likely you have already been contacted by an insurance adjuster, eager to come to a quick settlement. Your gut instinct may be to settle quickly and receive the money. Before you agree to that settlement, first read this and then contact an experienced personal injury attorney to represent you!
The Insurance Adjuster Is Not On Your Side
The insurance adjuster may seem sympathetic and caring. They may even imply that they are doing you a favor by offering a quick settlement so that you can put this whole incident behind you. Don't be fooled! The insurance adjuster wants to settle the claim as quickly, and for as little as possible. The insurance company is a business just like any other, and as a business they are out to make a profit. They recognize that you may be vulnerable and need quick money to pay these unexpected bills.
The First Offer is Intentionally Low
Were you shocked by an extremely low offer? The insurance company always presents a low-ball offer initially. They recognize that some people will agree to this low offer. If you refuse this offer, however, you may find that your formerly friendly adjuster begins to get grumpy. They may challenge your injuries, implying that they were preexisting medical issues and not related to the accident. They may lose the paperwork you submitted or shuffle you to another adjuster so that you have to explain your case all over again. Ultimately these tactics are an attempt to wear you down. These professionals are trained to get you to settle quickly and for less than you deserve.
