Discover How Your Personal Injury Attorney Can Help Ensure an Insurance Company Does Not Lowball Your Offer
When a person is involved in a car accident, they all too often assume that the offer they get from the at-fault party’s insurance company is the best offer they are going to get. This is rarely true. In fact, when you work with a personal injury attorney, you can increase your chances of getting the maximum compensation you are owed.
Read on to discover how Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas can help you achieve that goal. Then contact us at 909-982-0707 for a free legal consultation.
Know the Role of an Insurance Adjuster
First and foremost, it is important to know what an insurance adjuster does and what they do not do. In short, they do look out for their employers: the insurance companies. They do look for ways to reduce payouts as much as possible. They do not look out for your needs. They do not consider what is fair. Their goal is to get the lowest possible offer accepted. They are not on your side and they should not be treated as such.
Your Attorney Knows How Badly the Insurance Adjuster Does Not Want You to File a Lawsuit
It is a common tactic of an insurance adjuster to insist that their offer is the best offer you will get. They often act as though they do not care if you take it or leave it. The truth is that they do not want you to file a lawsuit. They want you to settle the case for a number of reasons. First, it saves them money as trials are expensive. Second, they know that judges are juries can be sensitive to a person’s injuries and are more likely to give a higher award.
We Know What Your Case is Really Worth
We use the same metrics when deciding a settlement as the insurance adjuster and the courts would. This includes both your past and future medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and other economic and noneconomic damages. The main difference is that we are on your side – the insurance adjuster is not.
Insurance adjusters will look for ways to lowery our award and we know how to push back against them. For example, they may say that your pain and suffering is not as great as you say because of some social media post they find. We can explain that you working toward having a positive attitude even when in pain is far from evidence that you are not injured.
