Let’s Face It: You’re No Match for the Professional Insurance Adjuster
If you have been injured in an accident that was due to the negligence of another party or parties, you may be contacted by that party’s insurance company. Do not, under any circumstances, give any statements to that insurance company until you have spoken with experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney Anthony Carbone.
You should not speak with the insurance company since the insurance adjuster on the other end of the line represents the insurance company. An insurance adjuster is a highly trained individual and they are paid by the insurance company to find ways to save that company money. Therefore, giving you compensation for an accident is not in their interest and they will attempt to withhold as much of the money owed to you for as long as possible.
You may also be asked to sign papers. Again, do not do this until speaking with Mr. Carbone. You may be signing a medical release. By signing a medical release, you are signing away your compensation and the insurance company now has a legal document with your signature saying you allowed them to keep money from you.
Another thing to be wary of is having someone tape record you. This could jeopardize your case. Don’t gamble with your financial outcome when you don’t have to.
There are over 70 legal defenses and arguments to deny or reduce your claim (we will give you a copy of these). You should know these reasons and arguments before you give a statement. Know your legal rights and do not take chances with your claim. What you don’t know can cost you plenty.
