Shortly after the accident, an insurance adjuster from the negligent driver’s insurance company will contact you to discuss your personal injury claim and hear your side of the story. Unfortunately, during the course of the conversation, the insurance adjuster will do whatever it takes to get you to admit fault for the collision or admit that your injuries are minor and not as severe as you claim. The insurance adjuster will request to record this conversation, so it can be played back at a later time, to allow them to search for inconsistencies in your story. The recording will be used as evidence against you.
During the call, you will be asked question after question. In most cases, you’ll be asked the same questions repeatedly, to confuse you and help the claims adjuster search for inconsistencies. The entire process can be very frustrating and overwhelming for accident victims.
Instead of speaking to the claims adjuster, you must contact an attorney who has extensive experience dealing with insurance companies and handling complex auto accident claims. At the Moore Law Firm, our dedicated team understands how stressful dealing with insurance companies can be and how you can put your accident claim at risk by speaking with an insurance company without legal representation. Our attorneys can protect your claim and your rights by taking over all interactions with the insurance company. Instead of dealing with harrassing phone calls and aggressive claims adjusters, you can enjoy some peace and focus on your recovery.
It can take months to recover from injuries sustained in an auto accident. In some instances, you may never fully recover. During this time, you may not be able to work, and medical bills will continue to pile up. You may potentially be entitled to full compensation for your injuries.
