In a personal injury accident, victims and their families eventually have to deal with an insurance company. Whether filing insurance claims for medical expenses, property damage and accidental death with the insurance company of whomever caused an accident, or pursuing claims against one's own insurance carrier, their processes are sometimes more focused on avoiding claim payments than making sure you are fairly compensated for your loss. This is why it is so important for people to have experienced legal representation when negotiating a claim with an insurance company. You need someone who is looking out for your best interests, and not the insurance company's financial bottom line.

Insurance companies are in business for their own financial gain. It is not their job to make sure that you are fairly compensated for your loss. They often quickly contact the injured parties in a car accident in hopes of negotiating a quick, "low-dollar" settlement before the injured person can contact an attorney or determine the true extent of the injury or loss. If they are successful, then the injured person cannot come back and re-negotiate later when it turns out the injury or loss is much more severe than first anticipated. An experienced attorney can make sure that the insurance company does not take advantage of you with an enticing quick settlement offer that looks good at first, but in reality is not fair compensation for your loss.
Whether it is a truck accident or medical malpractice claim, there is a reason insurance company representatives, who contact victims and families, are called "adjusters." Their mission is to adjust payment on any claim in their favor, which often means paying nothing. Adjusters often are working from preset numbers and may not have a great deal of authority or experience working with complex accidents.
