When you have been injured due to another person’s fault, the insurance company will assign one of its “adjusters” to handle the case. The adjuster will seek to settle the case for as little money as possible in as quickly as possible.
Insurance adjusters are trained to handle claims to their advantage. While they might seem to be on your side and helpful, their ultimate goal is to settle your case for as little as they can get away with. Once you settle you cannot come back and ask for further compensation.
The adjuster knows that his or her job security is based largely on the overall amount of all the cases he or she has settled throughout the year. Accordingly, the adjuster will want to settle your case for as little as possible as save the company money.

Hit-and-Run Accident Our clients, the family of a cyclist killed after being hit by a car, retained our firm when the insurance company offered nothing. After taking on the case, we found a $1 million dollar policy. While nothing can replace the loss of a loved one, insult was not added to injury. The insurance company agreed to pay the $1 million dollar policy limit – a significant difference from the initial refusal to pay anything.
Pedestrian Accident Our client, a 12-year-old girl was jaywalking across the street when hit by a car. The police incident report placed the girl at fault. The insurance company therefore, refused to pay anything. The parents retained our firm to help. We were able to obtain a $77,000 settlement for the girl. Without our help, they would have had nothing.
