Doesn’t the insurance adjuster I am negotiating with have an interest in settling my case quickly?

Not really. The insurance adjuster has an interest in protecting his employer’s profits. To that end, the insurance adjuster wants to settle your case for the least possible amount of money. If settling your case quickly furthers that goal, then the insurance adjuster will want to settle quickly. However, if settling quickly doesn’t seem to further the goal of  you accepting a low settlement, then the adjuster may not want to settle your case quickly. Generally, though not always, a quick settlement does benefit the insurance company if the truck accident victim does not consult with a Virginia truck accident attorney prior to accepting the settlement.

As the victim of a Virginia truck crash, you likely want to settle your case as quickly as possible.  However, keep in mind that you only have one chance to settle your case correctly, and therefore it's important all the evidence be considered.  This may include past, current, and future damages related to your accident.
