When to Contact an Attorney


If yours is not a clear-cut case, be sure to consult with an attorney before speaking to an insurance adjuster. Doing so will save you from making statements to the adjuster that may be damaging to your claim.


It would be prudent to at least seek advice from an attorney when:

  • Liability is not clear or is shared between or among the parties.

  • You have no idea how to evaluate your claim.

  • The adjuster has asked you to provide medical records from prior to the accident.

  • The adjuster has made you an offer and you think your claim is worth a great deal more.

  • The adjuster is offering a structured settlement rather than a lump sum payment.

  • You are not confident in your ability to negotiate a settlement on your own behalf.

  • You have a claim of lost wages that is difficult to prove—for example, you are a consultant, a business owner, a sales person, etc.
