Don’t take the insurance adjuster’s offer!Return to Video Blogs
Law enforcement, medical personnel, and the insurance adjuster, they are generally among the first people you will deal with after a car crash. The first two are necessary and appreciated. The third, not always so much. You see, that adjuster works for the insurance company, and you can be sure he or she will be anxious to write you a check, and get your signature on the dotted line, case closed. But personal injury attorney Scott Smith says, “Tempting as it might be, don’t do it.”
This is a tactic that I see often used by insurance companies to try to get matters resolved for 5%, 10%, 20% of the true value of your claim. Although they may tell you that you’re saving money by not hiring a lawyer, statistics actually prove that claims resolve for a much, much higher amount when a lawyer gets involved to protect your legal rights.
