My spouse was recently killed in an Illinois car accident. The insurance adjuster keeps calling me. He seems sympathetic to what my family is going through. Should I talk to him or to an Illinois wrongful death lawyer?

Everyone should be sympathetic to what your family is going through. An Illinois car accident is tragic way to lose a spouse.

However, as sympathetic as the insurance adjuster may seem, it is important to remember that he or she does not have the same priorities that you do. As concerned as the insurance adjuster may seem about you and your family, the adjuster has a job to do. That job is to pay you as little as possible for your claim so that the profits of the insurance company may be maximized. Insurance companies make money by taking in more money in premiums than they pay out in claims.

Thus, it is important for you to talk to an Illinois wrongful death attorney for a couple of reasons. First, you can be assured that an Illinois wrongful death lawyer is working for you and is zealously advocating for your full and fair recovery. Second, you won’t have to wonder about whether a proposed settlement is fair. Your experienced lawyer will be able to tell you if the settlement is one that you should accept. Finally, your lawyer can take over communication with the insurance adjuster and remove this source of stress from your life.
