The Insurance Company is Not Your Friend
When you submit a claim to the insurance company, it is the responsibility of the insurance adjuster to keeping the payout as low as possible so the company can stay profitable. The adjuster will offer you just enough of a settlement to avoid a lawsuit. The adjusters will examine the following factors when deciding on a settlement:
- Both current and future expenses
- Any income losses
- Pain and suffering as well as emotional damages
