Even though you are paying your insurance company to protect your assets, they are mainly interested in protecting their own vested interests and bottom lines, and paying out any claim in full is detrimental to their profits. When dealing with insurance companies, it is important to understand how they work, so your settlement is full and fair.
Simply stated, insurers make money in part by denying you benefits, so the insurance adjustor is not necessarily your friend – his primary role is to keep the insurance company’s payment as low as possible. Insurance adjustor knows the tricks of the trade to get you to accept what he thinks is fair. He may try to discourage you from seeking medical care, or he may tell you that rental car coverage is limited to a set number of days. In most cases, this is not true, and if you are not at fault, you are entitled to have all of your reasonable damages and expenses covered. You are also not required to give the at fault insurance company’s adjustor a statement or a medical authorization. However, you are required to provide your insurance company a detailed statement.
