How an Insurance Adjuster Handles a South Carolina Personal Injury Claim

An insurance adjuster works for the best interest of the insurance company, not yours as the injured party. This is why you should be aware of the ways they may handle your South Carolina personal injury claim.

One of the first things an insurance adjuster will attempt to do is get you to give a recorded statement concerning your injuries.
However, during that conversation the insurance adjusters could get you to admit anything about your personal life, even things about your past with no relationship to your accident that may be used against you.

An insurance adjuster can also use your statement to pick apart your case in ways you haven't thought of. They can also ask misleading questions that may cause you to say something contrary to what you meant.  

Your Goose Creek personal injury attorney can take over communications with the insurance adjuster on your behalf, which can help protect you from some of these tactics in addition to ensuring your legal rights are not being violated.
