How to Handle the Insurance Adjuster If you have been in a car accident and are the victim of another person’s negligence in the state of Georgia, you will likely get a phone call from an insurance adjuster. Our advice is to be very wary. The adjuster will likely be very nice and friendly to you, and may even ask questions with the goal of getting you to say that you are doing fine. Such calls are recorded, and thus can be used as evidence in court. An insurance company will not want you to hire an attorney or even speak with one, but we strongly recommend that you do before speaking to an insurance adjuster. Even the smallest bit of conversation could ruin your case before it even begins. 

The bottom line is that the insurance adjuster is not your friend. He or she wants to settle your case as quickly as possible for the least amount of money. Remember, you are not using the insurance adjuster. Rather, you are being compensated for your injuries or the injuries of a loved one. It is very important to understand the law before moving forward with your case. Shane Smith is an experienced lawyer based out of Atlanta, Georgia who understands how insurance companies work.
