Don’t Lose Money to Insurance Company Tactics

Here’s the truth: insurance adjusters are not your friends. They are highly trained individuals whose job it is to reduce the amount of money the insurance company pays you. They’re going to do everything they can to minimize your settlement. That’s why it’s crucial to hire an attorney after an accident.

Examples of What Insurance Adjusters Say to Get What They Want
