What If the Insurance Adjuster Threatens to Withdraw All Offers If I Don’t Settle Now?
A common insurance claims adjuster tactic is to threaten to withdraw his offers if you do not accept the current settlement. This is often a bluff that is meant to create the illusion that your case value is time-sensitive‚ but this is rarely the case. Your medical bills are not just going to disappear‚ nor will you regain the wages you lost while you were out of work recovering. A case worth $25,000 will continue to be worth $25,000 in the future. Don’t let the insurance claims adjuster convince you otherwise.
