Don’t Settle for Less Than You Deserve THREE UNDERHANDED TACTICS USED BY INSURANCE COMPANIES

your case can be used against you, so it’s best to keep your relationship with your insurance company strictly professional. Delaying Your Claim Insurance adjusters know you’re in a tough spot, and they use it to your advantage. After an injury, you’ll be desperate to pay off your medical bills however you can, especially if your insurance company doesn’t respond to your request for compensation right away. This is intentional. They know that the more desperate you get, the more likely you are to accept a lower settlement. Be persistent when you call them, and have an experienced attorney on your side. Monitoring Your Social Media What keeps you more connected to family and friends may also prove to undermine your attempts to get fair compensation. Insurance adjusters might monitor your social media accounts for any evidence that would suggest your injuries are not as severe as you claim or comments that suggest you’re partially liable for your injuries. Don’t accept any follow requests you’re not sure about, and don’t post on social media after your accident. Following a serious injury, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Paul Levin will make sure you get the compensation you deserve. Give us a call for a free consultation at (860) 322-5302.

In a perfect world, your insurance adjuster would fairly compensate you for any injury you sustained in an auto accident or at work. But this is often not the case. While insurance adjusters should have their clients’ best interests in mind, often the only thing they’re thinking about is their bottom line. While working with your insurance provider, following an injury, look out for some of these tactics they’ll use to minimize your compensation. Pretending to Have Your Best Interests in Mind Some insurance adjusters have a pleasant demeanor and will be polite enough over the phone, but don’t be fooled. Insurance adjusters are not your friends. They have a job to do, and their tone of voice belies their intent — to get you to reveal more information about yourself than you would otherwise.

• 2 large russet potatoes, scrubbed • 1 large onion, peeled and cut into quarters • 2 large eggs • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour • 2 tsp kosher salt

• 1 tsp baking powder • 1/2 tsp black pepper • Safflower or vegetable oil, for frying

Instructions

1. Using either a food processor with a coarse grating disc or the coarse side of a box grater, grate potatoes and onion. (If using a food processor, halve or quarter potatoes.) Once grated, wrap in a clean dish towel or cheesecloth to wring out as much moisture as possible. 2. Transfer to a mixing bowl and mix in eggs, flour, salt, baking powder, and pepper. 3. Heat a heavy-bottomed pan containing 1/4-inch of oil over medium-high heat. Use a heaping tablespoon to drop batter into the hot pan, working in batches. Use a spatula or spoon to form them into discs. Fry about 5 minutes per side, until deeply browned. 4. Transfer to a paper towel-lined wire rack to drain, and serve alongside applesauce and sour cream.

JACK IS READY FOR CHRISTMAS.
