You have enough to deal with following a Riverside car accident. Don’t let the insurance adjuster intimate you.
Following your accident, the insurance adjuster will likely contact you. The first thing that you need to understand is that the adjuster does not work for you. More often that not, they do not have your best interest in mind.
First, the insurance adjuster may try to convince you that you do not need a Riverside car accident attorney. He or she may even suggest that the majority of your settlement will go towards legal fees. This couldn’t be further from the truth. A past study shows that victims with representation are more likely to receive higher settlements than those who are not represented by an accident attorney.
Second, the insurance adjuster will probably ask you to give a recorded statement. Do not give one until you have spoken with an experienced Riverside accident attorney. The insurance company is hoping that you will say something that will discredit your claim.
Lastly, your attorney can assist when the insurance adjuster uses delay tactics to compensating you. The insurance company is hoping that you will succumb to the pressures from your accumulating medical expenses. They are hoping that you will agree to the first offer they present.
