Can You Trust The Insurance Adjuster?

If you have been hurt in a car accident because of another driver's negligence, you may soon get a call from that driver's insurance company, if you haven't already. The insurance adjuster will sound friendly and sympathetic. The adjuster will ask you questions about the accident and your injury. You may even be offered a settlement.

But can you trust this stranger with details about the situation? Can you trust that he or she has your best interest at heart? Can you trust that the settlement offer is fair?

Here's The Truth: The Insurance Adjuster Isn't On Your Side

Who is signing the insurance adjuster's paycheck? It's not you. It's not the driver who caused the car crash. It's the insurance company. That is who the adjuster is loyal to.

How do you think insurance companies succeed? They succeed by collecting insurance premiums and paying out as little as possible in compensation. They certainly do not make money by handing out settlement checks.

So the insurance adjuster has incentive to pay you as little in compensation as possible. Adjusters will prey on victims by getting them to make statements that can be used against them or by talking them into thinking that low settlements are actually fair. They will use all sorts of tactics, from trick questions to misleading statements. They will delay. They will lose paperwork. They will try to wait you out, hoping that you get so desperate because your bills are piling up that you will take anything.

Do not fall prey to these tactics.

Who Can You Trust?

At Russo White & Keller P.C., our attorneys are committed to standing up for car crash victims. We will not let you be bullied by an insurance company. When the insurance adjuster calls, we recommend providing nothing more than the most basic information. Do not talk about the crash. Do not talk about your injuries. Do not accept a settlement.

Our attorneys will communicate with the insurance company on your behalf. We will make certain that the damages you have suffered are accurately calculated, so we can pursue a settlement that is fair. If the insurance company is not willing to offer one, we will take the matter to trial. We are trusted in the courtrooms of Alabama.

We handle all personal injury claims on a contingency basis, which means we only get paid if you get paid, and when we do it is a percentage of your total settlement. In other words, it is in our best interest to do what is in your best interest.
