What is Your Insurance Adjuster Not Telling You?

If you are injured because of the negligence or carelessness of another person, you are entitled to recover damages under California’s personal injury laws.  In most cases, the other party’s insurance company assigns an adjuster to work with you to settle your claim. This person represents the insurance company. An adjuster does not work for you nor the party that caused your injury. The adjuster’s job is to protect the interests of the insurance company by paying the least amount of money for your claim. To perform their job effectively, there are three things that an insurance adjuster hopes you do not know about personal injury claims.

Three Reasons Not to Sign That Accident Settlement Agreement

When you are injured in a traffic-related accident, product liability accident, slip and fall (premises liability case), or another personal injury accident, the personal injury laws in California provide a way for you to recover money for your injuries. The money you recover is intended to compensate you for your financial losses (i.e. property damage, lost wages, medical expenses, travel costs, etc.) and your non-economic losses (i.e. pain and suffering damages). An insurance adjuster for the other party may approach you early in your case to offer a settlement for your claim. You should be careful when agreeing to accept a settlement offer for several reasons. As experienced Fresno personal injury attorneys, we want you to receive a settlement amount that is equal to the full amount of damages you suffered because of another party’s negligence. For this reason, we offer free legal consultations so that you can learn about your options before you accept a settlement offer that is lower than the amount you deserve for your claim.

What Factors Impact an Injury Settlement in California?

Whether you are in a car accident, bicycle crash, pedestrian accident, slip and fall, motorcycle crash, or commercial truck accident, you can seek compensation from the party who is responsible for the accident. The amount you can recover for an injury settlement depends on a variety of factors. The insurance adjuster for the other party will not tell you if you are settling for less than your claim is actually worth. Our Fresno personal injury attorneys can tell you if an injury settlement is fair or if you should decline the offer and demand a higher amount based on the factors of your case.

How to Know if You Were Injured in a Traffic Accident?

This sounds like an odd question because you would assume that anyone involved in a traffic accident would know if that person sustained an injury. However, this is not always the case. After an accident, you may believe that you are “okay” because you do not feel any immediate pain or have any visible signs of harm. However, this does not always mean that you escaped the crash without any injuries. Traffic accidents, including pedestrian, bicycle, and motorcycle crashes, can be violent and cause injuries that are not immediately known to the victim. Some injuries may have delayed symptoms. Therefore, you should always see a doctor after any accident, regardless of whether you feel fine or you believe the accident was “minor.” Even low-impact accidents can cause debilitating injuries.

Tips for Talking to an Insurance Adjuster After an Accident

The days and weeks after an accident can be very confusing and frustrating. As you work to heal physically and emotionally from injuries sustained in the accident, you must also deal with the financial aspects of an injury claim. In many cases, the insurance adjuster for the other party may contact you before you have the chance to consult with an attorney. It is important that you are very careful in how you deal with the adjuster because what you do and say can have a significant impact on your injury claim. We urge you to call our office at 1-800-954-4444 to speak with a Fresno accident attorney as soon as possible after an accident.  If possible, you should consult with an attorney before you talk to the insurance adjuster.
