Attorneys Know How To Talk To Insurance Claim Adjusters
Whether the car accident you were involved in was in Clearwater, Hudson, or Tampa, insurance claims are possible, particularly if you or someone else’s sustained injuries that require medical care. While communicating with claims adjusters is part of the damage recovery process, you can save yourself money and stress when you choose to rely on a legal professional to handle those conversations for you. Leaning on the expertise of an attorney will allow you to focus on other matters, such as physically healing from an injury and having your car repaired or replaced.
Importance of Providing Proof
Experienced attorneys understand what evidence is needed to support your need for a full compensation settlement. Because of this, they will gather documentation on your behalf and determine how much your claim is worth before discussing financial figures with an individual who works for an insurance company. For this reason, it is best if you do not go into an insurance negotiation without having all of the information you need. Because if you begin a car accident compensation discussion that relies on the information solely from the adjuster, you may end up agreeing to a settlement amount that is far lower than the amount you could receive with legal support.
The importance of documentation and facts means you should be honest with your attorney each step of the way, even if you worry it will impact the amount you will receive. For example, if you are concerned about how compensation will be handled when it comes to pre-existing conditions that have been exacerbated by a traffic accident, talk to your lawyer about it. It is far better for your lawyer to go into insurance negotiations armed with information than to be surprised by a form of documentation an insurance adjuster unearthed in their discovery process.
Low Offers Could Be Negotiated Into High Offers
A Florida insurance adjuster may tell you the offer they have put forward is the highest available. But you have to understand that it is in the adjuster’s interests to have an accident victim agree to the first offer. After all, the adjuster is putting forward an amount based on the documentation they are looking at, but what if there are additional expenses and fees that haven’t been taken into account? When you hire a Florida personal injury lawyer they will carefully assess your past, current, and future fees. Then, they can negotiate a low offer into a higher offer.
