What Should I Never Tell an Adjuster?
Are you worried about talking to the claims adjuster?
Are afraid that you won’t receive what your claim is worth?
Do you need to settle your claim fast to help pay bills immediately?
Before you do anything, you need to consult with a Colorado worker’s compensation attorney first. Getting legal advice first will be the best thing you can do! Attorneys can help prepare you for the types of questions an insurance adjuster will ask.
Check out tips to help you stay calm and answer the adjuster’s questions:
1. Don’t tell an adjuster you could have gotten injured off the job.
Unless you know without doubt the injury happened off the job, don’t speculate that it may have happened somewhere else. The adjuster will look for possible reasons to deny your claim. When you have found out for certain that a work accident caused your injury, the adjuster can use your original statement to cast doubt on your application for workers' compensation benefits.
It doesn’t cost you anything or risk your benefits to discuss your injury with a Colorado workers’ compensation attorney at Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC.
2. Don’t tell the adjuster that you really need the money right away.
The adjuster presumes that you need benefits, but you don't want to look desperate. This is particularly true if you’re negotiating a settlement. If you stress how much you need money, this could signal the adjuster that you’re willing to settle your claim quickly in order to pay some immediate bills. Talk to an experienced workers' compensation lawyer about your rights and the full value of your case.
Are you afraid that your insurance company will cheat you out of what’s rightfully yours? You may need to speak with an experienced attorney about your rights!
