What Not to Say to Insurance Adjusters
If your slip and fall were caused by the negligence of others, you can be sure of one thing: insurance carriers will try to limit their liability by blaming you for causing the accident or offering a settlement that does not fairly compensate you for your injuries, losses, and other expenses.
Expect insurance adjusters to contact you to offer a cash settlement. Depending on your case, more than one insurance company may contact you. They will ask you how the accident happened, describe your injuries, list treatments you are receiving, and share your schedule to return to work.
We recommend that you never answer any questions before you have spoken to your slip and fall lawyer in Brockton, MA. Ideally, you would refer the insurance company to your personal injury lawyer for all communications related to the case. This will help protect you from saying or doing something that could hurt your case.
We also recommend that you:
- Never allow an insurance company to pressure you to quickly accept their initial settlement offer
- Never allow an insurance company to downplay your injuries, or persuade you not to hire an attorney
- Never share information about your financial status or give permission to view your private medical records
Remember, the insurance company does not have your best interests at heart. They are trying to build a case that supports a minimal amount of compensation. Your lawyer can help fight against these tactics and negotiate for the settlement you deserve.
