Victim Beware: Talking to the Insurance Adjuster After a Boise Auto Accident
You’ve been in an auto accident in Boise and one of the first things you do is call the insurance company to submit the claim. You talk to an insurance adjuster, who seems to have your best interests in mind, but can you trust him? Typically, the answer is “no.” When you hear the adjuster say a few certain phrases, you’ll need to make sure you’re on guard.
“I Need You to Sign These Papers Today”
The adjuster’s job is to prevent the insurance company from having to pay you any money. Pressuring you to sign papers is a clear sign that the adjuster is trying to get through your claim quickly, without giving you the opportunity to hire a lawyer or make attempts to fight for your rights.
“Provide a Recorded Statement”
Under no circumstances should you ever provide a recorded statement to your adjuster. Anything you say will be scrutinized and held against you later.
“You Don’t Need to Hire a Lawyer; We’ll Work it Out”
The insurance company does not want you to hire an attorney because it knows it will have to pay you what you are owed, if you have the right law firm on your side. An adjuster will say whatever it takes to stop you from having legal representation.
Don’t let the insurance company stop you from getting what you deserve from your Boise auto accident; hire an attorney from the Morton Law Offices.
