After a motorist engages in a car accident and files a claim with their insurer or the other driver’s insurance company, their case will be assigned to a claims adjuster who has several tasks they must complete. One of those tasks entails the adjuster assisting the claimant and addressing any questions they may have. Another task they are responsible for involves them estimating what the damage is worth and how much a claimant should receive.
Sadly, many insurance adjusters fail to provide a claimant with the answers and assistance they are seeking and often provide them with a settlement offer that doesn’t cover the actual cost of the damage that was done.
When a car crash victim is paired with an insurance adjuster who isn’t providing them with the quality service they should receive, they have a few different options they can explore to see if they can get their issue resolved. For example, let’s say an insurance adjuster is offering you a settlement for $10,000 for your injuries but they are actually worth $15,000, which happens to be what the minimum bodily injury liability insurance coverage is for drivers in the state of LA. What this means is that if your injuries were to amount to $15,000, which they hypothetically do, then you would be entitled to recover this amount. However, the insurance adjuster refuses to tell you what the maximum amount of compensation is that you are eligible to receive and simply tells you that you can only collect the $10,000.
If these are the current circumstances you are dealing with or you are faced with another issue you can’t seem to resolve, you can always request to speak with a supervisor. In the event a supervisor is unable to provide you with the help or information you need, then your next step should be to contact Alexandria, LA car accident attorney Davey Jones.

Insurance companies aren’t your friend and rarely will they provide you with the actual amount of compensation you are eligible to receive.
