How should I deal with insurance companies after my loved one’s wrongful death?

Do not expect sympathy from the insurance adjuster for your wrongful death claim

You have suffered the most significant loss possible—the death of your loved one—but to the insurance company your claim is just another personal injury case and the insurance company’s goal is the same as it is in every personal injury case. That goal is to pay you as little as possible for the accident that took your loved one’s life.

Be Careful With Insurance Adjusters

Since your goal is at odds with the goal of the insurance adjuster, it is important to be careful about what you say to them. The insurance adjuster is calling you now because the insurance company is hoping that you will settle your case quickly and for less than you would if you found out more about your legal rights or if you were represented by a wrongful death lawyer. While the adjuster may sound sympathetic about your loss, it is important to know that the insurance company is not on your side and may use anything that you say against you during the settlement process.

You Don’t Need This Stress as You Grieve

We understand that you have no interest in speaking with an insurance adjuster, and we believe that you shouldn’t have to talk directly with an insurance adjuster. You do not have to play the insurance company’s game. Instead, you can protect your legal rights and avoid talking directly with the insurance adjuster by contacting a wrongful death attorney. Once you are represented by a lawyer the insurance company must direct communications to your lawyer rather than to you. That means that you will not have to talk to the insurance adjuster anymore and that you can be confident that your rights are being protected by your lawyer.

To learn more about how a wrongful death lawyer can help you with the insurance company, we encourage you to contact us any time via this website or by phone. We would be pleased to provide you with a free consultation and with more tips about protecting your wrongful death claim.
