Dealing with Insurance Companies

Alpharetta Car Accident Lawyer

As emotionally and physically jarring as a car accident is, the mere act of reporting this accident to your insurance provider can only add further stress. The process of trying to obtain your due compensation can often be full of hangups. You may have to work your way through numerous automated messages only to get passed from one insurance adjuster to another. Any answer from them can require endurance, and getting a straight answer may seem like too much to ask from some companies. You should not have to face the aftermath of a collision on your own. With a dedicated Alpharetta car insurance attorney on your side, you may have a greater chance of succeeding with a positive insurance settlement. Our attorneys at Kalka & Baer, LLC are more than willing and ready to help you negotiate with insurance companies as you seek restitution for your personal injury or wrongful death claims.

Our Alpharetta Personal Injury Attorney Negotiating on Your Behalf

After you have called the police, gathered the other parties' contact information, taken pictures, and you are in stable health, you will need to report the accident to your insurance company. Before you do this, however, you will want to call your lawyer. Legal advice is a crucial component for protecting your best interests, as most insurance companies are reluctant to give out settlements. When you you're your insurance provider, report the basic facts of the car accident, and NEVER admit fault. Also, remember that any apologies to the other parties involved can be misconstrued by their insurance company as an admission of fault.

You will want to keep in touch with your attorney throughout each step of this process. You should consult with them as things develop, and never sign anything before you talk it over with them. One of the first things you should prepare for is talking with a claim adjuster. You will have to answer their questions and give a recorded statement. After this call, adjusters will then determine who is at fault for the accident. If you are deemed responsible, then your insurance should cover the other parties. If the other driver is at fault, then his or her claim adjuster may call you. You may be asked to give a statement, but you do not have to. In fact, it is probably best if you do not. The other insurance company may try to get out of paying you. Should you give a report to the other company, make sure that it is not being recorded.

Even if you have faithfully done your part, you may still have issues with insurance companies, including your own. Despite the fact that you have been responsibly making your monthly payments, insurance will always be reluctant to give out anything in a settlement. Your claim may be rejected, or insurance companies may even claim that you are getting the greatest offer possible, even though it is an extremely low settlement. Protect yourself from insurance bad faith. Work with a respected car insurance attorney from our firm.
