How an Insurance Adjuster Can Affect Your Personal Injury Claim
If you have been involved in an auto accident in Tennessee, then you will typically be dealing with the at-fault parties’ insurance company to deal with property damage and medical expenses. Once the insurance company is made aware of a possible claim, they will assign the case to one or two adjusters within the company.
The Insurance Adjuster
The primary job of the insurance adjuster(s) will be to investigate the accident to determine if their insured is liable. It is at the beginning of a possible claim that you consult with a qualified Tennessee personal injury attorney who can provide the adjuster with the accident report, witness statements, and video footage to assist in the overall investigation. Once liability is established, the insurance adjusters will work with you and your attorney to resolve any accident-related issues.
Types of Adjusters
Property Damage Adjuster
The property damage adjuster will typically be the first point of contact to assist in vehicle repairs, rental car coordination, towing/storage fees, and any personal property reimbursements.
If you were injured in an auto accident, the medical payments adjuster will be in touch with your attorney throughout the claims process. He/she will be in charge of reviewing medical reports and bills, lost wages, and any other proof of damages that were sustained in the accident.
The insurance adjusters have the authority to make offers of settlement on each claim they handle. Remember, their job is to handle claims on behalf of the insurance company, not you. Therefore, it is vitally important that you obtain an experienced attorney to represent you during the entire claims process. We will provide the insurance adjuster with the proper information to assist in obtaining a favorable settlement for you, not the insurance company.
