If you have been in an auto accident, it is inevitable that you will have to speak to a claims adjuster from the at-fault party’s insurance company. When that time comes, it is important to remember that the adjuster for the at-fault party is an advocate for the at-fault party. While the adjuster may seem friendly and helpful, the adjuster’s primary goal is to save as much money as possible for both his employer and his policyholder. In the case of an auto accident, this means quickly settling your claim before the extent of your injuries are made known. In light of this, it is critical that you do not sign or agree to anything offered by the adjuster before consulting your attorney. Doing so will only put you in a position to recover less money than you are rightly entitled.
