Commonly, after you have been in an accident involving another driver, especially in accidents involving injury, you will be asked to speak with an insurance adjuster for the other driver involved. The insurance adjuster knows you are shaken up, anxious, and worried. Unfortunately, they will use this high stress situation and your lack of knowledge about settlement claims, to minimize your needs. This is where working with Attorney Beverly R. Caruthers comes into play. When you work with a personal injury attorney, especially one with as much experience as Attorney Caruthers, insurance companies will immediately take you more seriously. This is because they know they will not be able to get away with the same bully tactics they use on victims without the counsel of a legal professional.


How Do Insurance Companies Take Advantage of Victims?

After you have been injured in a personal injury of any type, you will need to be able to prove the other party is at fault and that you have suffered injuries. If you are able to prove both of these things, you will qualify for compensation to help cover the costs of the damages you have suffered. These damages can include but are not limited to: property damages, medical bills, loss of wages, physical pain, emotional pain, and more.


Understanding that the burden of proof rests on the victim’s shoulders, makes it easy to see why so many victims make the mistake of releasing their medical records to the other party’s insurance adjuster. Something to take into account is that many insurance companies operated in predatory ways, going behind your back to collect information that can damage your case. The adjuster may tell you that the insurance company needs copies of your medical records to “verify” your injuries before paying your accident claim. However, once you sign a medical release over to the insurance company, they will have access to all of your medical records. This means they will be able to use everything on file against you to minimize your need for medical attention, due to the accident you were involved in. Do not fall for this trap, instead, contact the Law Office of Beverly R. Caruthers today!
