Injured? You Need An Advocate Not an Adjuster

As an injured party after an accident, it is important for you to remember that an insurance company, even your own company, is not your friend. The insurance company will attempt to settle your claim in a way that saves them money. You may have a personal relationship with the agent who sold you your policy, but when his company is settling a claim, your agent cannot help you.

The company will encourage you to sign off quickly so that you can settle the claim, and get your money. This may sound attractive, but it is rarely in your interest. Retaining a Personal Injury law Firm will protect you from a hostile company that not only wants to pay you as little as possible, but that also has no concern about your best interests.

An insurance company will pay only what it must. After a serious accident, the company will send an independent claims adjuster, or an investigator who works for the company, to the scene of the accident. This person will attempt to gather evidence that will help, either to deny your claim, or to reduce the amount that the company will be required to pay.

If there is an injury involved, an adjuster will frequently ask you to sign a medical authorization. This will allow your doctor to provide your medical records to the insurance company. While this may seem helpful in moving the process along, it is rarely for your benefit. It might allow the insurance company to access all of your medical records, whether or not related to the accident. The company may go fishing through your records, hoping to discover something that will reduce their liability.

An accident victim, who has not retained the services of a Personal Injury law Firm, is usually unaware of the firm’s many available resources. The firm will be knowledgeable about medical experts, with whom it can consult. It will also have a strong support staff. The firm will have access to investigators, who will assemble the facts accurately, and who will interview witnesses. All this helps to insure that you will receive fair and just compensation.

Hiring an experienced Personal Injury law Firm, that knows how to deal with insurance companies, and that negotiates for you from a position of strength, is the best way for you to obtain the compensation that you deserve.
