Understanding Claim Adjusters

If you've suffered an injury due to another's negligence, it's crucial to be aware of the claims adjuster's role. After auto accidents, the claims' adjuster, representing the responsible party, will likely contact you. While appearing caring, their primary goal is to build a defense for their client. They may attempt to record conversations, ask leading questions, and request medical authorizations. It is advisable not to grant permission, but instead hire an attorney to handle communication on your behalf.

Fees and Costs

In personal injury cases, our office operates contingently, ensuring you pay nothing upfront. We only receive compensation if you are awarded money, with our fee typically equivalent to one-third of the award and expenses. Fees may be higher in complex cases involving extensive legal work, such as medical negligence or product liability.
