Is your insurance company claiming to have your back and to be on your side, and promising to get you a fair settlement? Never forget that the adjuster is your adversary. The adjuster’s salary, job security, and future position with the company depend on the ability to save the corporation money. The company’s interests are not your interests; in fact, they are diametrically opposed.
Remember, the insurance adjuster is not your friend!
Insurance adjusters are usually quick to act and hope to catch you off guard, before you’ve had time to hire a lawyer to represent you and before you’ve had time to determine the extent of your injuries.
Adjusters are usually affable types who are able to engage you in conversation and draw you out. While outwardly friendly and concerned, they are not interested in your well-being and, although they will probably make representations to the contrary, they are not there to help you. They are there to protect and promote the interests of the company that pays them.
