arguing about money. The process can crawl on for weeks, if not months, as the adjuster makes request after request. During this process, they may throw out a low number, hoping you will settle. As tempting as it is to get it over with, giving in will mean you’ll likely end up will a lot less than you need. They make constant requests. Building off the point above, adjusters will make requests for practically every piece of information or documentation they can. Some of it might not even be relevant. They make you do a lot of excess work that they should be doing, and theywon’t hesitate to hang the results of the case over your head if you don’t comply. If you don’t get the documents they ask for, they won’t pay. They refuse to pay for future treatment. Immediately following a wreck, you may be injured and not realize it; adrenaline and confusion often mask the pain and discomfort that will set in later. This means you’ll have future medical bills you haven’t accounted for. If you settle with the insurance company too quickly, there is nothing you can do to recoup the costs of treatment. That’s on you and possibly on your health insurance, if applicable. It’s not a good place to be. These are just three examples of why it’s so important to speak with an attorney before making a call to the insurance company. You need to be ready for what they have to say, because when you’re prepared, you’ll be happier with the results.
A LAYER OF PROTECTION

When you call to submit a claim, the insurance adjuster has one goal: to pay you as little as possible. Insurance adjusters are the gatekeepers between you and the money you need to take care of your medical and repair bills — not to mention the many other expenses that pop up following a car wreck. To get what you truly deserve, you may need someone on your side who can kick down the gate and get results. Insurance adjusters have a number of tactics they us to pay you as little as possible. When you call, they immediately go to work putting up barriers. Here are a few examples. They wear you down. You want to resolve the case as soon as possible, while still getting the money you need for bills and expenses. Adjusters want to drag the process out for as long as possible, so you may end up on the phone for hours on end
