Dealing with an Insurance Company
If you have been involved in a personal injury, then it is very likely that you will be dealing with an insurance company.
Normally, you will first come in contact with an insurance adjuster that has been assigned to your case. The adjuster is there on behalf of the insurance company to investigate the facts surrounding your personal injury. Although friendly, the adjuster is not there to really help you. As a matter of fact, they are there to make sure you receive as less money as possible. In some instances nothing at all for your personal injury.
What should you do if contacted by an insurance company for the at fault driver?
If an insurance adjuster who represents the party that is responsible for your personal injury contacts, you then refer them to your attorney. You are not obligated to speak with them. You are also not obligated to negotiate or make any deals with them. It would actually be in your best interest not to speak with them. Any information you give them could be used against you in court, which could diminish any reward you may be entitled to.
Although an insurance company of the party responsible for your personal injury wants to give you as little as possible they also prefer not to go to court and have to deal with a civil lawsuit. It is important to have dedicated and experienced attorneys like Pepper and Odom represent you. The insurance companies will make offers to settle your case for 30 to 50 percent less than what you are entitled to.
If you and your Personal Injury Attorney has to take your case to trial then your potential reward rest in the hands of a judge or a jury. At this stage the insurance company is taking the risk of losing more money because a jury can be very sympathetic towards a plaintiff. Legal fees that are associated with your case can also be very expensive for the insurance company.
