When insurance companies have to pay out compensation to claimants, they do whatever they can to protect themselves and their profits. As such, they keep secrets from claimants and find ways to reduce the amount of compensation you may recover.
Our Salem car accident attorneys want you to understand your rights. Below, we’ll provide you with some of the secrets that insurance adjusters keep from you during the process.
You Can and Should Hire a Lawyer
Insurance adjusters will act friendly and pretend that they’re looking out for your best interests. They’ll tell you that you don’t need a lawyer to go through the process and that it will just cost you money. However, without a lawyer, insurance adjusters often take advantage of your vulnerable situation, and they try to pay out as little as possible. Make sure you hire a lawyer.
You Can Recover More Than They Offer
Insurance adjusters may claim that you can only recover what they offer you and nothing more. They know you need money, and you want to complete the process quickly. Hire a lawyer before accepting any settlement offer, so your legal counsel can help you understand if you can recover more.
You Can Have a Lawyer When Providing a Recorded Statement
Recorded statements are more than just training and quality tools. They provide insurance adjusters a way to keep track of your statements, which they can try to use against you if they’re not accurate. Make sure you have a lawyer present to help deal with the recorded statement and provide information that protects your claim.
