What Not to Say to Insurance Adjusters After a Slip and Fall Accident

There are few things more frightening than being involved in a slip and fall accident, though if you’ve been injured in one, the time to act is now. After a slip and fall accident, you will most likely have to speak with insurance adjusters, and at times, this can be quite tricky, however, with our New York City personal injury attorney on your side, it does not have to be. Below are some tips on dealing with insurance adjusters after a slip and fall accident.

Speaking With Insurance Adjusters After a Slip and Fall Accident

  • In many cases, insurance companies will offer you a lowball settlement to start. This is because they are businesses, and oftentimes, businesses care most about their bottom line. For this reason, it is critical that you hire an attorney who knows how to deal with insurance companies, can inform you of whether you are receiving a fair offer, and ensure that you do not sign any unfair agreements or settlements.
  • Oftentimes, when you file a claim, the insurance company will try to downplay your injuries, insinuate you are not really injured, or ask you trick questions in an effort to get you to make a reply inconsistent with your claim. This is why it is so important that you receive medical treatment right after your accident and obtain a copy of all medical documentation/bills that truly prove the extent of the damages you’ve sustained.
  • Finally, you should be aware that if the insurance company offered you a lowball settlement that you rejected, you may all of a sudden receive the silent treatment. This is simply because they are waiting to see if they can get the statute of limitations to elapse before you pursue compensation further. Our firm can work to keep on top of the insurance company to ensure that you do not miss the statute of limitations.

The bottom line is that although insurance adjusters are not always on your side, our firm is, and if you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall due to another party’s negligence, our firm is here to assist you in any way we can.
