Tips to Deal with Insurance Companies after an Atlanta Car Accident

By Grant Law Office on August 29, 2012

It is easy to believe that an insurance company has your best interest at heart. The truth is, insurance companies are powerful corporations that look out for their own best interests and their bottom line. Insurance adjusters often try to minimize the value of a claim so the company will not have to pay as much. Victims of Atlanta car accidents should use caution when dealing with an insurance adjuster.

Georgia Accident Insurance Claims

Remember that a Georgia insurance company will look for weaknesses in your claim. They will want to prove that you were not injured or that you were responsible for the crash. When you speak with an insurance provider, do not allow him or her to record your conversation. Refer to your notes so that you stay consistent and to the point. Do not elaborate on the crash more than you have to. You never know how they will attempt to twist your words.

Never admit fault for the crash, and never accept the first settlement offer without discussing it with an attorney. Once a victim accepts a settlement, the case will be closed and additional compensation will not be available. Therefore, an insurer will attempt to lowball the victim with the hope that the initial settlement will be accepted.

Another mistake that victims make following a crash is talking too much. Saying that your vehicle was cheap, broken, or old following the crash could affect how much you are offered for repairs. Joking that you are a bad driver can hurt your claim that the other party was solely responsible for the collision. Stick to the facts and remain concise.
