Waldorf Personal Injury Lawyer
Serving Charles County, Maryland helps people injured in car collisions or other accidents

If you have been injured in a car accident, or in any other situation, you need experienced legal help to get a fair and reasonable recovery for your injuries. It is a mistake to try to deal with the insurance company on your own because the insurance company is not likely to offer you what your case is worth. Instead, the adjuster will try to take advantage of your inexperience and use various tactics to wear you down and give you a minimum settlement.

Carroll Drake and Kenneth W. Prien have a combined 40+ years of legal experience.

Be very cautious when you are talking to the insurance adjuster

Insurance companies are in the business to make money, and one of the ways that they make money is by paying as little as possible on claims, says a Waldorf personal injury lawyer.

It is important for you to remember this, and to understand that dealing with an insurance adjuster is an adversarial process. Furthermore, it is important to realize that the adjuster is trained and experienced in the process of getting people to accept inadequate settlements.

Don’t be deceived. The adjuster may appear to be friendly and cooperative and trying to be fair to you. However, the adjuster will probably discourage you from getting legal advice, and will use a variety of subtle tactics to convince you that your claim is not worth as much as you think. A Waldorf personal injury lawyer will be able to help you navigate through this tricky process, and perhaps help swing the pendulum in your favor.

Don’t be fooled into trying to negotiate your own accident settlement

The insurance company may push for a “quick and easy” settlement. It is often to the advantage of the insurance company to settle quickly, and you may need the money right away. However, you may have injuries that require long-term treatment and expense.

Other times the adjuster may delay forever, and drag your case out until you give in to an inadequate settlement offer. As Waldorf personal injury lawyers, we feel this is unacceptable and that you deserve better treatment.

Don’t let the insurance company trick you into something that you will regret later. Car accidents and other personal injury matters can result in serious injuries.
