What to Do if You’ve Been in a Car Accident in Maine?
Being in a car accident is an unsettling and disruptive experience. You weren’t planning on having your life turned sideways and be dealing with a damaged or destroyed car along with injuries that require visits to the doctor and missed time from work. Here in Maine, while you should be focusing on recovery, people are instead bombarded with messages and calls from insurance adjusters. While these people may seem to be “on your side”, make no mistake, they are not. Insurance adjusters’ legal duty and loyalty is to their company, not you!
Dealing with insurance, car repairs, injuries, disruption of normal life is overwhelming, especially as you try to heal from a traumatic and painful experience. Insurance companies train their adjusters to get to you as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, too many people respond to these insurance inquiries rather than contacting a car accident lawyer first. This is playing into the insurance company’s hands.
