Welcome back to the Spencer Calahan Injury Lawyers Blog. We are into our March blog series, and it’s off to fast start. In our previous blog post, we reviewed some blogs that examined frequently asked questions that we get asked as personal injury attorneys and car accident lawyers. Today, we turn our attention to handling insurance adjusters. Unfortunately, all the money you’ve paid into insurance doesn’t endear the insurance companies to you. They are in the business of taking in as much money as possible and paying out the least amount possible. That means there’s a likelihood they are going to try to avoid paying you what deserve. Read this intro and the linked article for more concrete tips on handling the insurance company.
“If you were recently in an automobile accident, it’s likely that an insurance company has asked you to make a recorded statement with an insurance adjuster. It’s important to remember that we never advise that you do this without consulting your Baton Rouge auto injury attorney first. Why? Because your recorded statement could be used against you and cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars. However, if you do choose to speak to an insurance adjuster first and make a recorded statement without speaking to us, there are some things that we suggest you keep in mind.”
As you can see from our first blog review of the day, Insurance adjusters don’t always “adjust” for the pain and suffering you are experiencing. Our second article picks up on this theme that there is more to consider than getting the car fixed when you are involved in a car accident, but insurance companies don’t want to hear about it. That’s why you need a car accident lawyer who is willing to roll up his sleeves and fight for you.
“Because we have years of experience dealing with people in your situation, we know exactly what you’re looking for. We take the time to understand your individual needs and we understand that usually, when a person is in a car accident, they’re likely dealing with much more than car repairs. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, it’s likely that you’re also dealing with medical costs, doctor bills, loss of income due to not being able to work, as well as physical pain and suffering.”
