Some inured people in Kentucky attempt to handle their own claim, and here are some mistakes they make:
1. Not Consulting With a Lawyer
Why wouldn’t you take a free consultation with a professional that can tell you your options?
2. Giving a Recorded Statement
Insurance claims adjusters will try to force an injured person into giving a statement in hopes that they’ll make a mistake, and it can be used against them at a future time.
3. Assuming It’s Really The Final Offer
A self-represented claimant offers no threat to an insurance company, so the “final offer” is rarely the real final offer. However, without the help of an attorney, how do you know?
4. Settling Too Early
Has your doctor given you his final written opinion? Do you have all of your medical bills and records? Your insurance company will try to settle immediately, well before the extent of your injuries can be asertained.
5. Assuming the Insurance Company Will Be Fair
The goal of an insurance company is to keep as much money in the corporation as possible, so your best interest is not necessarily their’s.
