Should I Be Communicating With The Insurance Company After An Accident?
The lawyers at our office believe that the more our clients know about the legal process, the easier the journey will be throughout their personal injury claim. When a client hires us to represent them, one of the first things that we do is make sure that they know what the personal injury claims process entails, and that we will be there to advise them throughout the entire process.
One document that we provide our clients with is the steps that are included in a personal injury claim. We have been outlining them in our blog, including the below posts:

The next steps that we will explain are those that involve the communication that will take place with insurance adjusters. From the beginning of your case, you can expect to have the insurance company and insurance adjusters attempting to reach out to you, talk about your case, and try to get to you sign documents that you should NOT sign.
Steps in a Personal Injury Case
10. The personal injury attorneys at our office will notify all insurance adjusters of your claim through letters of representation. This ensures that the at-fault party’s insurance company will not bother you anymore.
By taking the responsibility of communicating with insurance adjusters off of your shoulders, you will be able to be much less stressed. It is difficult to have insurance adjusters attempting to talk with you all of the time about your personal injury claim. Our lawyers and legal staff are more than able to successfully communicate with the insurance adjusters so you don’t have to.
11. After compiling all medical bills and records, we will send a letter to the at-fault party’s insurance company that details your injuries and demands fair compensation. The demand letter will include an impact statement on how the injury has affected your life.
It is imperative that you keep track of all of the documents that relate to your case (medical records, bills, and doctor’s statements), making it much easier throughout the legal process for both yourself and your attorney. The personal injury lawyers at our office help you to compile these documents to present them to the insurance company, requesting proper compensation for the pain and suffering that you have experienced.
12. Our best negotiators will negotiate your settlement with the insurance company to ensure maximum recovery.
Those working at insurance companies are professionals who have the goal of keeping costs low. This means that they will do everything they can to keep the payments you receive as low as they possibly can be. Having an accident lawyer working for you is extremely important. The lawyers and legal staff at our office deal with insurance companies on a daily basis and have the experience and resources to help you get the compensation that you deserve.
