Virginia Personal Injury Lawyer
Call The Jackson Law Group before Calling the Insurance Company
Insurance companies and their adjusters try to get accident victims agreeing to settle their own cases as quickly and cheaply as possible. In fact, the goal of insurance companies is to settle claims as quickly and cheaply as possible. Because of this, we hear horror stories from clients, such as low ball offers and adjusters telling victims their settlement offer will expire at the end of the day. Adjusters also try to take advantage of accident victims before they contact an experienced personal injury attorney. Do not let this happen to you, and call The Jackson Law Group before speaking to any insurance representatives.
Don’t Sign Medical Release Forms
Insurance adjusters use high pressure tactics so victims will sign broad medical record releases. The medical releases can be used to obtain old medical records to find “preexisting conditions.” This reduces the value of your claim. Do not sign medical release forms before talking to a personal injury lawyer about your case.
Beware of Recorded Statements
Insurance adjusters request you provide a recorded statement immediately after the accident. Attempting to figure out who was at fault. This recorded statement is critical for your case! These adjusters are trained in asking questions in ways to confuse accident victims. Virginia’s law relating to car accidents called “contributory negligence” means if an accident victim is at fault in any way, even 1%, the victim can NOT recover for their injuries. Unfortunately, getting confused and answering these questions incorrectly means your claim can be denied. Legal representation will help you avoid being this situation.
