The job of an insurance adjuster is to settle a claim at the lowest sum possible in order to save their company money. This results in injured victims not getting the fair compensation they deserve.
The Kansas auto accident attorneys of Brave Law Firm serving Salina & Wichita, know the tricks of insurance companies, and how to counteract their unfair practices.
After an auto accident, the other driver’s insurance claims adjuster will contact you to ask for information. The adjuster may want you to divulge sensitive medical and employment records by signing a release statement, or make a recording for authorization. They might even offer what they consider a “fair” settlement. However, under no circumstances should you agree to any offer, or disclose personal information to an insurance adjuster without first finding legal representation! The adjuster doesn’t have your best interests at heart even though they may seem helpful and friendly. They want to increase their company’s profits by finding a way to deny your claim and/or make you settle for far less than its true value.
Injured Kansas victims need an experienced auto accident attorney who knows how to value a claim fairly and accurately. An insurance adjuster wants you to settle your claim before an attorney can estimate damages that are difficult to quantity. These damages include diminished enjoyment of life, permanent disability, and pain and suffering. Insurance adjusters know that certain serious injuries may not be discovered until after a medical examination, which is another reason why they want you to settle as fast as possible. An adjuster may even claim that your accident was a “low impact” collision, which is used to undermine the seriousness of your injury and the damage to your car. They take advantage of the financial pressures you’re feeling to get back to work and pay medical bills, by offering a nominal sum that’s far below what you’re actually entitled.
If an insurance adjuster is trying to make you settle your claim before the seriousness of your injuries can be determined, please call the Kansas auto accident attorneys at Brave Law Firm for Salina & Wichita. We want to help you win the compensation you deserve!
