How Insurance Adjusters Handle Claims

by | Sep 11, 2017 | Personal Injury | 0 comments

Because every adjuster’s goal is to settle their claims for as little as possible, it is imperative that you hire a Michigan injury lawyer to ensure that you get the just compensation you deserve for the injuries you have suffered.

Factors Affecting How Your Claim is Handled

Generally, various factors such as the size of the insurance company, location or corporate guidelines, affect how each insurance company handles its claims.

Larger Insurance Companies

Typically, the bigger the insurance company, the more conservative it will be in handling its claims. These larger insurance companies are not hesitant to take their cases to litigation and they are not afraid of losing a few thousand dollars, which will not even make a dent in their pockets. Loyal claims managers, who generally run a tight ship, manage these bigger national carriers. They have several claims supervisors who directly report to them. They cannot settle any claims without the authorization of their manager.

Smaller Insurance Companies

In contrast, the smaller insurance companies are easier to deal with. Even though they do not give money away, they are more reasonable and willing to negotiate and settle their cases. These comparatively smaller carriers have fewer claims managers who directly report to the vice president of the company.

One Goal: Settle for as Little as Possible

When it comes down to it, it does not matter whether you are dealing with a small or large insurance company. Each insurance company has one goal, to settle your personal injury claim for as little money as possible. They do not care about the property damages you have sustained or the personal injuries you have suffered.

Do not short change yourself. You need to hire a Michigan injury lawyer to assist you in getting the compensation that you deserve.
