how to talk to an insurance adjuster

Talking to an insurance representative by yourself after an accident could be a big mistake. Unfortunately, it’s absolutely true that insurance adjusters are not always fair. An insurance company seeks to pay out the least amount of money, and any representatives you talk to will be looking for ways to diminish your claim.

Here are a few tips to make sure that this part of the settlement is done correctly.
