Hi, I’m John Ostroff. Thanks for visiting Ostroff law.com you’ve clicked on a question about what you should do if an insurance adjuster for the at fault driver contacts you. This is an easy one. Nothing. Do not take the call. Do not call them back. That adjuster is not calling you to help you. Adjusters are good at what they do. They’re probably going to be really nice. They’re probably going to offer to help you. They’re going to talk about being able to settle your case quickly. All they’re going to want is a couple of authorizations that I would never give them. I would never put them in a position where they can obtain your medical records carte blanche. They are not in the business of paying benefits. They are in the business of saving insurance companies money and protecting their insured. Not You. If an adjuster wants to talk to you, don’t feel like you’re doing anything wrong. Even if they say they’re going to close your file by not calling them back, do the smart thing. Contact an injury lawyer that’ll take care of you. A law firm that knows how to handle a case like yours.
It’s also important that you make a call to a law firm that knows how to represent you early, quickly after a crash. Once you’ve gotten the medical care you need after the crash, contact a lawyer. There’s so much evidence that we obtained. In fact, if you look at the bottom of the screen right now and you click on that tab, you can learn more about why it’s so important for us to get started early on in a case, this is the call you should make, not to call to that adjuster. Let me call that adjuster for you. Let my law firm take care of this among many other things for you. If you’ve been injured, this is what we do. This is something new for you. You don’t know how to handle this in terms of the insurance company. They’ve got billions and billions of dollars and hundreds if not thousands or tens of thousands of people trained to cut payment of benefits and not to to take care of people that are the victims of their insurance. I hope this has been helpful. Thanks.
