If you’re hurt in a car accident, your focus is healing your injuries.
The insurance adjuster’s focus is paying you as little as possible, preferably paying you nothing. In fact, it’s their job.
Insurance companies are training their adjusters every day in tactics to minimize your claims. They try to lead you to believe:
- You have to use their repair shop for your vehicle
- You have to use the doctors they specify
- If the company doesn’t agree with the treatment you got, they don’t have to pay
- They will pay for ANY treatment, so long as you sign a settlement early in the process
- They determined the time limits
They are just a few of the misrepresentations the insurance industry tries to con you into believing. For each one of these you go along with, you reduce the value of your claims a little more.
So there are three things you MUST do for your claim: select a mechanic or body shop you trust to repair your car, visit your family doctor to learn what treatment you need, and speak to a lawyer you trust to learn your actual rights. Don’t let the insurance company make those choices for you.
