Understanding Insurance Adjusters’ Tactics After a Car Accident

After a car accident, dealing with insurance adjusters can be a daunting task. Insurance adjusters are trained professionals who work for the insurance company and their primary goal is to settle the claim for as little money as possible. They use various tactics to achieve this goal, including delaying the claim, denying the claim, or offering a lowball settlement. In this blog, we will provide you with tips to protect yourself from insurance adjusters’ tactics after a car accident.

1. Don't Accept the First Offer

Insurance adjusters often offer a lowball settlement in the hope of closing the claim quickly. Don't accept their first offer. Instead, consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who can evaluate the offer and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf.

2. Keep a Record of Everything

Keep a record of all the communication with the insurance adjuster, including phone calls, emails, and letters. Note down the date, time, and content of the conversation. Also, keep a record of your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to the accident.

3. Be Careful What You Say

Insurance adjusters may try to get you to admit fault or downplay your injuries. Be careful what you say to them. Stick to the facts and don't speculate about the accident or your injuries. If you're unsure about something, say so.

4. Don't Sign Anything Without Consulting an Attorney

Insurance adjusters may ask you to sign a release or other documents. Don't sign anything without consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney. A release may prevent you from seeking additional compensation later.

5. Hire an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney

The best way to protect yourself from insurance adjusters’ tactics is to hire an experienced personal injury attorney. An attorney can handle all communication with the insurance company, negotiate a fair settlement, and take your case to trial if necessary.
