Insurance adjusters all work for companies who make money in the same way. Their employers, the insurance companies, maximize their profits by taking in more money than they pay out. Thus, their financial goal is to pay you as little as possible for your claim. This is true even if it is your own insurance company, and it was you who paid that company the premium so that you would be covered, should you be injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist.
Now the Insurance Company Doesn’t Want to Pay
Your policy allows you to recover damages for your own injuries if the other motorist, who was responsible for your accident, lacked adequate motor vehicle insurance to pay for your injuries. Yet, instead of writing you a check, the insurance adjuster seems adversarial. He is doubting your injuries, and he is justifying why the insurance company should not have to pay you what you think you should be paid.
The insurance adjuster likely sounds convincing. He may even have you believing that you are entitled to a much lower recovery than you originally thought that you should get.
Do Not Be Fooled
Even though this is technically “your” insurance company, you and the insurance adjuster are not on the same side. Accordingly, it is important to protect your rights to a fair recovery for past, current, and future medical expenses, out-of-pocket costs, lost income, pain, suffering, and other damages.
