Been in a Car Accident? Now What?
After you’ve been in a car accident in Maine, the phone calls, emails, and letters from insurance adjusters start to fill your mailbox or inbox. It can feel overwhelming when you’re trying to heal from an injury and get back to your normal routine. It may even seem like a good idea to pick up the call from the insurance company and accept a low settlement offer rather than speaking with a car accident lawyer. You may regret that decision.
Talking to a trained insurance adjuster on your own means giving the insurance company the advantage. The insurance industry is a multi-billion dollar business, and its business model is focused on getting people to settle before they talk to a lawyer. Every time an insurance adjuster gets a non-represented person to settle, the insurance company increases its profits. It’s that simple.
