- Be Patient
It is normal for insurance company adjustors to offer amounts that are less than the value of your case. Insurance companies will engage in nefarious tactics that will persuade you to take less than what you are legally entitled to and deserve.
Because of this, we recommend letting your attorney handle communication with the insurance company. They won’t be able to trick us, and we will always lookout for our clients’ best interests. The insurance company, on the other hand, is just looking out for their bottom line.
If the insurance company contacts you before you have gotten an experienced lawyer, politely decline their offer and tell them your attorney will be in contact with them in the coming days. Once you settle your offer, there is not revisiting it; make sure you are getting what you should.
- SHOW HOW THE ACCIDENT AFFECTED YOU
You can prove your physical pain and suffering through medical documentation and photographs. Your property damage can be proven through the incident report, appraisals, and photographs as well. In addition to this, you should also emphasize your emotional pain and suffering. In your testimony, be sure to indicate how the accident has affected your mental state. If you need counseling, that can be included in your medical costs and, therefore, you can get compensation.
