After an accident, you may be approached by an insurance adjuster who represents the insurance company of the person who caused the accident. No matter how that person may come across to you, friendly or aggressive, the adjuster’s job is to save the insurance company money. They will try to accomplish this goal by reducing your claim and trying to convince you to accept a lower settlement. The adjuster may claim that you were at fault, or that you do not need a lawyer. A claim adjuster does not work for you and is not looking out for your best interest.
When talking to an insurance adjuster, be courteous and take note of what questions the adjuster asks. However, do not enter into a dialogue with the adjuster or provide any statements that could be used against you in your claim. Tell you lawyer what was said between yourself and the adjuster and let the legal professional evaluate your claim and help you deal with the insurance company.
Don’t Forget: Do not give away information to a claims adjuster. Contact an attorney and obtain his/her advice as soon as possible.
