According to the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are about three million people who are non-fatally injured in automobile accidents annually in America. These crashes are incredibly costly. In 2017, the productivity losses and medical care expenses incurred due to injuries and deaths from car accidents cost over $75 million. Someone has to pay these costs. If you were injured in a car accident, the other party’s insurance company could be liable for paying them for you. How much you receive will likely depend on the success of yours or your car accident attorney’s negotiations with them.
Insurance adjusters know that typical injured individuals do not have experience or knowledge when it comes to negotiating claims. They take advantage of this fact and use it to pay you as little as possible for your claim. When you hire a well-versed car accident attorney, you have an advocate on your side who has experience negotiating with insurance adjusters and attorneys for the insurance company. Your chances of receiving the settlement you are entitled to grow with an attorney on your side.
Negotiating with an auto insurance company can be more complicated than it seems. You might think that the adjuster is on your side and is trying to work with you to get you a fair settlement. In reality, most adjusters have one goal in mind; to pay you as little as possible for your claim. They will use all kinds of tricks and tactics to meet their goal.
Consider the common mistakes claimants make when speaking with insurance adjusters:
Depending on the size of your claim, making even one of these mistakes can be disastrous when it comes to getting compensation for your injuries. When you hire a car accident lawyer, you do not have to worry about making any of these mistakes. Your attorney will handle negotiations for you. If you are required to speak to insurance company representatives, your attorney will be with you and advise you about what to say or what not to say.
It may seem quicker and easier, but not hiring an attorney to handle your car insurance claim is extremely risky. Studies show that injured individuals who have legal representation usually receive more compensation for their injuries than the ones who do not.
