If you ever suffer a personal injury due to the negligence of another party, one of the most important things you’ll need to realize is that you’ll have to get the help of an experienced attorney. One of the main reasons is that you’ll be dealing with a seasoned insurance adjuster. In order to have the best possible chance of succeeding in your case, you’ll need someone working on your behalf to deal with the adjuster assigned to your case. At The Durham Law Firm, we’d like to share some information on how they typically work.
The Insurance Adjuster’s Purpose
The role of the insurance adjuster (also commonly known as a “claims specialist” or “claims representative” is to save his or her employer – the defendant’s insurance company – as much money as possible. Adjusters are judged on how little of the insurance company’s money they spend in a settlement, as well as by how quickly they reach a settlement. More than likely, the one you’ll be dealing with in your personal injury case will have a great deal of experience, and will know how to get plaintiffs to settle for far less than they may be entitled. As a result, it is extremely important that you are as well educated as possible regarding how much your claim is worth.

There have been many instances where adjusters will harass personal injury victims relentlessly – especially when they know a plaintiff does not have a legal representative. Many times, this harassment gets so bad that a plaintiff will agree to a settlement offer just to get that adjuster off of his or her back.
