Why You Never Settle With an Insurance Adjuster in MississippiMississippi Legal News
Every single day, in the state of Mississippi, personal injury cases are settled with no involvement from an attorney between the injured victim and the insurance adjuster that was assigned to their case. It is not uncommon for people to hurriedly sign the documents given to them by their insurance adjuster rather than first obtaining just a bit of free legal counsel prior to accepting an easy settlement.
Reasons Victims Settle With an Adjuster
A lot of injury accident victims mistakenly believe that a personal injury attorney will cost them most of their settlement package or court-awarded financial compensation, or that the amount of money they can collect for you is no different than the insurance adjuster’s settlement offer once they take all their fees. Then again, some victims are terrified at the prospect of having to go to court simply because they have anxiety and are just too nervous or feel they do not have the time to be dealing with personal injury attorneys and the legal system. They just want things done and over with so they can move on. Still, other victims feel that the insurance adjuster is so honest and friendly and has surely told them all they need to know or that they are only qualified to collect whatever amount of money the insurance adjuster has offered them.
Why You Should Speak to an Attorney First
Not one of these excuses is a viable reason for blindly accepting what an insurance adjuster is offering you. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to inform you in a very short window of time whether or not a settlement offer made by the insurance company is equitable or further examination into your claim might be a good idea. The insurance adjuster gets paid to protect his company’s bottom line. It is not their job to look out for what is in your best interests.
A reputable personal injury attorney is not going to take a huge cut of your settlement and will only receive a fair percentage for services rendered. A good attorney will also do their best to get you a settlement that is fair and equitable and most of the time can do it without the case having to go to trial.
