How to Protect Your Interests When Working With Insurance Companies

Working with an insurance company on a claim can try your patience. Even if your claim is legitimate and your coverage is applicable, the insurance company may delay or even deny your claim for any number of reasons. For this reason, it is important to know how to protect your interests when working with insurance companies. It is not uncommon for claims to be denied because the claimant disclosed too much or too little. Ideally, you would speak with an experienced Georgia personal injury attorney prior to filing your claim.

The claims process can be predatory, and those who approach the process blindly may inadvertently devalue their claim. When communicating with insurance adjusters, be judicious in what you say. Avoid making any statements that could suggest you accept some of the fault. Try to remain neutral in your communications. Remember, you are working with a business. Insurance adjusters may act friendly, but they are simply representatives of a business that wants to settle your claim for as little as possible. Don’t embellish any facts. Your claim could be compromised if the adjuster later finds out that you exaggerated in any way, so resist the urge to over support your claim with less than true statements. Make sure you keep thorough records of all communications between you and any representatives from the insurance company.

Over the course of a claim, you may end up speaking to several different adjusters. Not all adjusters will keep detailed notes, and, if a dispute does arise, you will want to be armed with a comprehensive record of all your claim correspondence. Get the names and numbers of anyone you speak to, and try as best you can to get all communications in writing. Having this information can protect your rights in the case that you are being told different things from new adjusters. Be persistent and know your rights. This is where an attorney can come in handy. Insurance adjusters may try to wear you down by endless paperwork. This may be a tactic to get you to settle for a low offer. Know that you have a right to fair compensation for your losses.

If you are unsure as to what your rights are in your specific case, consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. Insurance policy language is notoriously vague, but the law provides that it must be interpreted in the claimant’s favor. A skilled attorney can evaluate your claim and policy and advise you on what your rights to recovery are. Armed with this knowledge, you can approach the claims process with confidence.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
