Recently, we met with someone who was injured in a car accident and realized that she’d made a costly mistake when attempting to handle her insurance claim herself. For the purpose of this article, we’ll call her Sally.
Sally was in a collision, and the other driver was at fault. The insurance adjuster for the other driver’s insurance company seemed to be so nice and cooperated with taking care of her property damage quickly.
Deceived into trusting that the adjuster had her best interest at heart, during a recorded conversation the adjuster offered Sally some money for her injury claim. Not fully understanding trap she was falling for, Sally agreed to accept the money.
Can You Spot the Mistake?
By agreeing to settle her injury claim during that recorded call, Sally settled her claim before receiving proper medical care for her injuries, risking her health and potentially costing herself thousands of dollars.
Sally did not understand that this “offer” was all that she would get for her injury claim. There would be no additional funds offered for her prior medical treatment, future medical treatment, additional lost wages, or pain and suffering.
