Insurance companies like to play games with innocent injury victims. Don’t fall for their tricks and traps. Here are seven insider secrets insurance adjusters don’t want you to know about.
- When Insurance companies tell you that their offer is final, they are not telling you the truth. Nearly every adjuster can get additional settlement authority from a supervisor to settle a case.
- You do NOT have to sign anything. Never sign something an insurance adjuster sends to you without having it first reviewed by an attorney.
- Hire a lawyer. Insurance companies will not tell you this, but they don’t want you to hire a lawyer because that means they will have to pay you a fair settlement for your injury claim.
- Never settle claims quickly! By settling too quickly you can miss out on a bigger amount of money.
- You do not need to provide a recorded statement. Ignore the adjuster when he or she insists that you provide a recorded statement.
- Even minor car accidents cause personal injuries. Studies show that serious personal injuries can result, even with little to moderate damages to the cars involved in an accident.
- You have up to three years to settle your case. If the adjuster pushes you to settle quickly, ignore the pressure.
