Protect Your Rights to Full and Fair Compensation
After an accident that was caused because of someone else’s actions, you will likely have grounds to file a claim for compensation for your injuries and other losses. When this happens, the insurance company involved in the case may try to get you to settle before you can proceed with a lawyer on your side. They’ll offer an amount and persuade you to accept it. However, this action benefits them, not you.
When an insurance adjuster is asking you questions about the accident and your injuries, you may not know how bad your injuries are or what it will take to heal. For example, you may have back pain, and inform the insurance adjuster, so you’ll be covered for back injuries. However, you could later find this pain is because of a neck injury. But you didn’t mention neck injuries when you spoke with the adjuster and you aren’t covered for those injuries. Our Santa Fe, NM personal injury lawyers will facilitate communication with the insurance company and help you avoid putting your claim in jeopardy.
Another way our attorneys can protect your claim is to guide you on how you should manage your social media accounts. While nearly everyone has social media as a way to communicate, express themselves, or provide updates about their lives, the insurance company can use your posts against you. Our attorneys can tell you how to avoid providing the insurance company with information they can use to lower your compensation.
If your accounts are public, one of the ways you can protect your claim is to set your accounts to private. This way, you can control who sees your profile and other posts. You should also refrain from posting about your case, as you may release information about the accident or your injuries that could be used to reduce your compensation. In some cases, it may be beneficial to use social media sparingly and avoid posting much altogether. If you have questions, you can consult your lawyer.
