The insurance adjuster called me not long after my car accident and asked a lot of questions. I provided everything that was requested, but it seems like it is taking a while to settle my claim. Whats going on?

Insurance companies are known for using various tactics to either deny or lower the value of claims.  One of these tactics is the deliberate delay of your claim.

The insurance company knows that you are most likely feeling financial stress. Your medical bills are piling up and if you are not working, you may not be able to meet all of your expenses.  As the financial pressure increases, the insurance company is hoping that you will be more apt to accept a low settlement offer.

This delay tactic is used to get you to the point that you would be willing to accept just about any offer that is thrown your way.  Therefore, it would be wise to consult with a Santa Monica car accident attorney who can review your case and if needed, step in on your behalf to ensure your interests are protected.
