Video Summary

  • Many clients are surprised at how quickly insurance adjusters for the at-fault party contact them after an accident.
  • The insurance company for the at-fault party is not your friend; their goal is to minimize your claim and pay you as little as possible.
  • Be careful what you say to the insurance adjuster, as it could be recorded and used against you later.
  • It is advised not to talk to the insurance adjuster immediately after the accident; instead, get a free consultation from an attorney first.
  • You are not legally obligated to talk to the insurance adjuster, and they cannot condition a settlement upon you talking to them.
