It is often a surprise to a client to learn that Louisville and Kentucky insurance adjusters are not interested in their best interests, even those who represent your own insurance company. If you are having an issue resolving the claim on your vehicle imagine how a discussion about your injuries and medical bills is going to go. Other insurance adjusters go out of their way to make your “property claim” (the coverage for the damage to your car) go smoothly in hopes to take you off guard when it comes time to discuss your injuries and medical bills.
It is important to understand one thing: Insurance companies are in business to make a profit – not to look out for your best interests. Louisville and Kentucky Insurance adjusters are highly trained negotiation experts who are trained to establish quick rapport in order to disarm you and attempt to get you to take a lower settlement. Many people injured in Louisville and across Kentucky don’t realize that they only get one chance to resolve your claim. You can’t accept a settlement check today and come back for more reimbursement when additional symptoms and medical bills arise down the road.
This is one of the many reasons it is important to contact the attorneys at Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, PLLC as soon as possible after you are involved in an accident caused by someone else. There are many things you need to learn to protect yourself. Since 1925 our law firm has protected Louisville and Kentucky injury victims and worked to ensure they receive fair and full compensation for what has happened to them.
If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident you should get checked out by a physician as soon as possible after the accident, even if you feel perfectly fine. The forces involved in a car, truck or motorcycle accident are quite severe and your body is forced to lash back and forth with incredible power. The resulting injuries can take weeks or months to fully present. Let the medical professionals examine you and establish a base line for what has happened. If you have absolutely no injuries you will have peace of mind. Many people are surprised to learn they have suffered more injury than they realize, and their doctor can help to prepare them for the aches, pain and disability that can and will show up in the near future.
Finally, resist the urge to post anything to social media. This is the first place insurance adjusters and the attorneys working for the insurance company will look to find “evidence” they can use to reduce your claim or outright refuse it. “You said yourself on your Facebook page and Instagram account that you were fine after the accident. You must have injured your back somewhere else,” followed by a poor offer or a denial of your valid claim.
