A car accident is a good lesson in the school of unpredictability, but what happens afterward doesn’t have to be, particularly if you’ve experienced painful personal injury. This article will prepare you for working with your auto insurance company in the unfortunate event of an auto accident:
- After the accident is reported to them, your insurance company will schedule a visit from an adjuster. The sooner the adjuster comes to assess the damage on your car, the better.
- When it comes to your personal injury, your auto insurance company’s adjuster might ask certain questions so as to minimize your injury, pain, and insurance income. Since an accident’s aftermath of medical and pharmaceutical costs is so high, you want to know how you can counter their minimizing strategies so that you get the money you deserve.
- You might disagree with the cost of damage assessed by the adjuster, in which case you can work to negotiate a settlement with your insurance company, mechanic, and other party involved. At this point, you should consider hiring an attorney.
- Furthermore, if you’ve been injured, then an attorney is a must. An accident is stressful enough, and the aftermath of dealing with auto insurance companies, adjusters, other parties, and health insurance companies can be aggravating and stressful. That stress is multiplied when you are trying to cope with pain from a personal injury. Personal injury lawyers can help you handle all of the phone calls and reports and can ensure that you receive the compensation your injury deserves.
