In the days and weeks following a crash, insurance adjusters will investigate your claim and often determine how much of a settlement they will offer. Unfortunately, that offer is hardly ever as much as it should be. The most effective way to maximize the compensation you may recover is with a lawyer on your side.
Before speaking with insurance adjusters, make sure you get a lawyer. Here’s why:
A Lawyer Can Help File Your Claim
Before you even call insurance companies, you should get a lawyer on your side. Even from day one, insurance adjusters work to minimize compensation as much as possible. You can have an attorney file your claim from the beginning of the process, strengthening your ability to pursue the most favorable outcome possible.
A Lawyer Safeguards You Through Recorded Statements
Insurance adjusters will often request a recorded statement after an accident. They ask questions, yet they already know the answers. They also look for any statements you make about your injuries and how the crash occurred.
If you say something during the recorded statement that insurance adjusters can use against your claim, they’ll be quick to minimize your compensation or deny your claim altogether. A lawyer can answer questions during the process to safeguard your rights.
A Lawyer Can Maximize Your Compensation
A lawyer has the knowledge and experience to help maximize the amount of compensation you may recover. A lawyer looks at your total losses while many insurance adjusters lowball how much you should recover.
