Insurance companies and their adjustors do not have your best interest in mind and will do everything possible to convince you to settle your case without hiring an accident lawyer. Moreover, if you do not have a good lawyer on your side, the adjustor will use every trick possible to get you to settle your claim for a fraction of what it is worth.
Insurance companies train their adjustors to settle personal injury claims as quickly as possible for a fraction of what it is actually worth. In other words, adjustors are evaluated by their employers based on the “turnover” rate of the claims assigned to them. The faster and cheaper the adjustors close claims, the more money the insurance companies will make. Therefore, the adjustors will do everything they can to persuade the claimant not to hire an experienced accident lawyer.
Use of Tricks to Prevent Claimant From Hiring a Lawyer
Adjustors will use various tricks to prevent the claimant from hiring a lawyer. These might include telling the claimant that an attorney will not make the claim more valuable or that it will slow down the claims process. Whatever tactic used, it is clear that adjustors simply prefer to deal with an unrepresented claimant.
What Happens When a Claimant Hires a Lawyer
Once the claimant hires an accident lawyer, it becomes harder for the adjustor to meet the goal of quickly settling the claim for a fraction of its worth. The adjustor will no longer be able to communicate or get information from the claimant without permission of the lawyer. The lawyer, in essence, is acting as a shield between the adjustor and the claimant.
