If another person’s negligence leaves you injured in an accident, the physical, financial, and emotional consequences can be immense.

The Negligent Party’s Insurance Provider

If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, you may assume that the negligent party’s insurance provider will fulfill its responsibility of covering your damages in their entirety. While this is a reasonable expectation, it rarely happens in quite this way. Insurance companies are businesses that are motivated by massive profits, and they are able to generate these profits by reducing their settlement offers and payouts whenever possible, including yours.

Dealing with the Insurance Company

Because the insurance adjuster you’ll be dealing with is well-versed in handling accident claims to the company’s advantage, there are some basic guidelines for dealing with the insurance company that you should consider, including:

  • You are not obliged to provide the insurance representative with a formal statement about your accident, and you are ill-advised to do so. Insurance adjusters are adept at obtaining the responses they are looking for and using them against the case at hand – it is wise to have your skilled personal injury attorney deal with the insurance company communications on your behalf.
  • Knowing that you are likely to be feeling the financial pinch of mounting medical bills and diminished pay, the insurance company may make an early settlement offer that is far too low – hoping you’ll be desperate enough to accept. Never accept a settlement offer before you’ve discussed the matter with an experienced personal jury lawyer.
  • Seek the medical assistance you need immediately after your accident and follow your medical provider’s instructions carefully. Not to do so sends a message to the insurance company that you don’t take your injuries as seriously as you state to take them in your insurance claim.
  • After being injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence is not a good time to post on social media. Any photos or statements you post can be misconstrued and used against you in your personal injury case. 

While you tend to the important business of recovering from your injuries, allow your dedicated personal injury lawyer to negotiate with the insurance company on behalf of your rights and the compensation you deserve.
