Recently, I was in a crash with two other vehicles. How am I supposed to handle the insurance adjusters?
In reality, it is best if you do not talk to the insurance adjusters on your own. Adjusters only have their employer’s bottom line in mind, not yours. An insurance adjuster is specially trained to minimize your settlement amount to preserve the company’s profits. They do not want to pay out on any claim if it is too big, and the goal is to reduce it or deny it. Never accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without first calling Hessig & Pohl. Our decades of experience have shown us that it is virtually certain the insurance company’s offer is going to be unfair, and you are going to end up filing a lawsuit.
You are under no obligation to talk to insurance adjusters from the other driver’s company, either. However, they are likely to try and get in touch with you soon after the accident. Be aware that if you choose to speak to them, it is likely that the call is going to be recorded, and anything you say will be used against you. Talk to Hessig & Pohl before answering any questions or signing any documents.
