To hire a Jonesboro car accident attorney, or not? It’s a question that many people consider when pursuing a car accident claim to recover damages. While most cases, especially lawsuits, would benefit from hiring an attorney, you may be able to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company yourself if you are prepared. The insurance company will have an adjuster handle your car accident claim.
Before even speaking to the adjuster collect all of your records:
- medical records;
- car repair estimates;
- police reports; and
- your own detailed notes.
You should also ask your doctor to provide you with a diagnosis so you can explain it to the adjustor. After speaking to the adjuster, you may receive a settlement offer or your claim may be denied.
If the adjuster denies your claim, send all of your documentation to him or her to back up your claim, or contact an attorney to negotiate on your behalf.
