Tips for Dealing with Auto Insurance Adjusters

Insurance companies are rarely on the side of policyholders, even if the accident was not their fault. Their ultimate goal is to make money, and that means paying out settlements as little as possible. two wrecked cars parked on the side of the road

Follow these quick tips to help you deal with insurance adjusters and to protect your right to fair compensation. If you are having difficulty resolving a claim or suspect that your insurer is acting in bad faith, speak to a New Orleans car accident attorney to learn more.

  • File quickly - Most policies have a time limit for filing a claim, so make sure you follow the instructions.
  • Understand your policy - Know what your claim is worth and what your policy limits allow. Deciphering insurance terminology can be complex, so talk to an attorney if you need further assistance.
  • Do not accept the first offer - Insurers want you to take their first offer because it is typically lower than what they should actually pay you. Do not make the mistake of taking the first offer out of desperation.
  • Negotiate - There is always room to negotiate for a higher settlement, especially if you have a strong claim that justifies a higher settlement.
