Five things the insurance company doesn’t want you to know about your personal injury case. If you are involved in an injury accident, it won’t be long before you get a call from the insurance company for the person or entity who caused your injuries. Before you say anything and certainly before you agree to a settlement, we want to let you in on a few insurance company secrets. Here are the five things the insurance company doesn’t want you to know about your personal injury case.
Number one, the claims adjuster’s job is to save the insurance company money, not to make sure you get a fair settlement.
Number two, the adjuster will ask you to give a recorded statement, but will not tell you that you do not have to give a recorded statement.
Number three, stay off social media. The insurance company will be watching.
Number four, the insurance company’s first offer is never its best offer and rarely its last offer. Don’t be intimidated into accepting less than your claim is worth.
Number five, the claims adjuster might dodge your calls and try to ignore your claim, but he won’t ignore a personal injury attorney. Once an attorney gets involved, insurance adjusters tend to be keen to resolve the matter.
