Your top priority following your car or truck accident should be to hire a personal injury attorney. Many South Carolinians are forced to make a serious of tough choices after their accidents. Many of those decisions involve dealing with insurance companies. But dealing with an adjuster or insurance company itself care be difficult and incredibly frustrating if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you’re going to represent yourself, here are a few things to consider:
It’s Just Business, Nothing Personal For The Adjuster
The adjuster will usually be the one to reach out to you following your car or truck accident. Remember that the adjust is not on your side and doesn’t have your best interest at heart! They’re probably just trying to get your claim out of the way as quickly and cheaply as possible before they move right on to the next person.
The Bigger The Claim, The harder adjusters try
Insurance companies try to offer as little as possible on claims and may delay paying for as long as they can. Often, injured consumers are left frustrated and feeling alone when insurance companies refuse to call them back or respond to their claims made against other drivers. The need of an adjuster correlates to how much the insurance company thinks they’ll have to pay out. If the other driver had a significant insurance policy and your injuries are severe, they’ll likely be very responsive.
Adjusters Know All The Tricks
Adjusters are taught and trained how to deal with car accident claims in order to pay the victim as little as possible. Accident victims should be aware of this fact. The truth is that with many personal injury claims, the insurance company doesn’t treat a person representing himself as fairly as someone with a capable, experienced accident attorney.
