How to Handle an Claim Adjustor
When in a dispute of any kind it is common practice to engage an adjustor. The object of the adjustor is to obtain a “quick settlement” and they can be misleading.
Some actions adjusters use are:
• I need your statement
It is the job of the adjustor to obtain statements from all involved and determine the smallest amount to be paid the injured party. These will determine whether to negotiate, pay the claim, or deny responsibility. They will obtain it in writing, in a recording or by interview. Never make or sign a statement without your lawyer’s authorization.
