Your San Diego Personal Injury Attorney Should Approach Negotiations with the Insurance Company As If It Were a Sale

By Ross Jurewitz on August 16, 2011

You may be surprised to know that a good personal injury lawyer uses the skills of a salesman to approach negotiations with the insurance company. In fact‚ your attorney is usually a better salesman than is the insurance claims adjuster‚ both because of his legal education and his prior experience in dealing with adjusters. Your San Diego personal injury attorney will probably approach negotiations with the insurance company as if he were commissioned with selling a product (which includes your medical bills‚ lost wages‚ and pain and suffering arising from the accident).

Because your claim can be viewed as a product for sale‚ your San Diego personal injury attorney will make sure to present it in a way that is most favorable to you. Settling with the insurance company is preferable to resorting to litigation to recover damages because this will save you time and money.

Here are the attributes of a good personal injury attorney will be a willing seller to the insurance company of your damages:

1. He focuses on the quality of the time spent negotiating with the claims adjuster‚ not on how quickly the negotiations can be done. Negotiations are facilitated when adjusters feel as if they were being treated and respected as equals.

2. He readily shares information about your claim to the adjuster. Sometimes‚ the claims adjuster will lack essential documents pertaining to your claim. In those instances‚ a good personal injury attorney will provide the adjuster with a legible copy of those documents.

3. He is aware of all the documents that the adjuster needs to evaluate your claim‚ and he appreciates how important they are. A good San Diego personal injury attorney is aware of everything that the claims adjuster needs to properly evaluate your claim. Even if the adjuster is not aware of any missing documents‚ a personal injury attorney should compile such documentation and present them in legible form to the adjuster. Anything that is illegible will in all likelihood be sent back and incur extra time and expense. Thus‚ a meticulous San Diego personal injury attorney may be needed to get everything right the first time around.
