"THE ADJUSTOR SEEMS LIKE A NICE PERSON. WHEN CAN I TRUST THE INSURANCE COMPANY?" In a word: NEVER. No matter how nice the adjustor is, they will never have YOUR best interests at heart.
"WHEN CAN"T I HANDLE MY OWN CLAIM?"Most of the time. A time-worn bit of wisdom is: The man (or woman) who represents him/herself has a fool for a client. That is the posture you are placing yourself in when you represent yourself in an injury claim. The insurance company has lawyers. Why shouldn't you?
"WHEN IS A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM SIMPLE AND UNCOMPLICATED?"Like beauty, the simplicity or complexity of a claim is in the eye of the beholder. The insurance company has a vested interest in making the simplest of claims as complicated as possible. At the first level, they wish to intimidate and overwhelm the injured person with the supposed complications in that person*s claim. An intimidated person becomes convinced they do not know what they are doing and yield to the guidance of "the professional", i.e., the insurance adjustor [when instead the injured person should be hiring a Personal Injury Attorney to represent him or her!]. The overwhelmed person all too often simply gives up and forgets pursuing their claim at all.
On another level, the insurance company wants to create as many issues in a case as possible so that their attorneys can distract the judge and jury when the case goes into litigation. If you hire Maurice L. Abarr to represent you in your personal injury claim you can avoid much of the complexity that insurance companies like to inject into an injury case or workers compensation case.
"WHEN should I hire A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER TO REPRESENT ME?" As soon as possible. The reason for this is: Very frequently, accident investigation becomes a crucial factor in determining the final outcome of a claim. Early investigation by investigators who work for the Law Offices of Maurice L. Abarr can make a great difference in the amount of your recovery and the speed with which you receive that financial recovery.
