After filing a personal injury claim after a Virginia vehicle accident, you will likely deal with insurance adjusters who will try to ensure that the insurance company pays as little as possible, and you don’t receive a fair settlement. But the attorneys at KFFJ Law have one tip for communicating with them: Don’t.
Don’t Deal Directly With the Insurance Company
After a Virginia accident, there are steps you need to take to help your personal injury case; however, talking to the insurance company is not one of them. When you hear from an insurance agency and/or an adjuster, it’s important that you direct both to your personal injury lawyer. Once it’s clear that you’re represented by counsel, all communication will be directed to him, and he’ll handle any questions or issues on your behalf.
This approach will help protect you from making critical mistakes. When you receive a call from an adjuster, he’ll likely try to trip you up and get you to say things you shouldn’t. It is the insurance adjuster’s job to get you to settle your claim for as little as possible, so the insurance company can maximize its profits. Anything you say to the insurance company can be misconstrued and used against you. You may make a mistake and not even know it. Having an attorney handle these calls will help protect your case.
