What Should I Never Tell an Adjuster?

Colorado Workers Compensation Attorneys

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!

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

- Jeff (2015)

"I’ve known the folks at Kaufman and Kaufman for more than 30 years. Correct - I said 30 years. The Kaufman’s have *always* done the right thing, especially when it’s not easy. Trust, in 2022, is hard. Trusting the Kaufman’s, in 2022, is simple."

- Jeff W. (2022)

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."

- Jessica C. (2022)

"The Kaufmans are a family owned firm that I highly recommend! They have always acted with integrity and intent to help people as best they can. You can trust them and I have dealt with the Kaufmans for a number of years now."

- JB (2022)

"The Kaufman team is very professional and knowledgeable about the work comp laws . They guided me in every step of the process, and if I ever have to do this again , they would be my first call. Without them i wouldn't have been able to pay my bills, and provide for my family. Thanks again to Kaufman and Kaufman for allowing my family to survive."
