FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Should I talk to the insurance adjuster?
No. Despite what they may tell you, the insurance adjuster is not on your side. It’s the adjuster’s job to save the insurance company money by finding a way to deny or reduce your claim. Many times, adjusters will use a friendly tone to get you to admit guilt or responsibility for an accident. The adjuster will then use this admission or comment to reduce or withhold your settlement completely.
Other tactics used by the adjuster include a quick payment or promise of a payment if you will give up all future claims against their policyholder. While getting money upfront right after your injury may seem beneficial, it’s not in your best interest to give up your rights to collect fair compensation until you have completed your medical treatment and all damages from the accident can be identified.
Remember, once you have admitted guilt or made a comment that in any way relieves the insurance company of its responsibility, the damage can rarely be undone. Seek the advice of an experienced injury lawyer before talking to the adjuster.
How much money is my case worth?
Every case is different. How much your case is worth depends on the facts of your case. We examine all the available evidence to arrive at a figure that we believe the insurance company must pay to fairly compensate you for your injuries.
How long do you get to file a personal injury claim?
Although it is especially important to seek legal help right away the California statute of limitations allows only two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. If you don’t act within that time you could lose your legal right to compensation. The sooner you get the case started the better. Investigating your accident, gathering information, and building a persuasive case is best accomplished before evidence disappears and witnesses’ memories fade.
We successfully negotiate a settlement with the insurance company for the majority of our clients. However, if the at-fault party’s insurance won’t negotiate in good faith or make a reasonable settlement offer, we won’t hesitate to file a civil suit an take your case to the courtroom.
