Should You Deal With The Insurance Adjuster Alone?
Insurance adjusters are trained to protect the reserves and funds of their employer. Insurance companies fight hard to save money paid out in claims, and these companies spend a lot of money lobbying our legislature to make sure laws remain favorable to their benefit. The media and the special interest groups have successfully instilled a guilt complex among those in the public who are faced with having to ask for a bodily injury claim. In turn, people hesitate to be part of a process that may embarrass them or make them feel like they are asking for money others feel they are not entitled to receive. As a result, many people deal on their own with the insurance adjusters of companies who represent the party at fault for the injury.
It is not uncommon for individuals to then soon become locked in a dispute with that insurance company, or sometimes even their own insurance carrier, regarding their auto or motorcycle accident claims. Many of Kinney Law, pc‘s, personal injury clients come to our firm after being frustrated trying to settle their insurance claims on their own, only to feel like they are being taken advantage of by the trained professional on other side of the case.
