Settlement Negotiation With Insurance Claims Adjusters
Individuals who are hurt because of another party’s negligent actions may be entitled to compensation for their damages.

Whether the claim is against an auto insurance company, a homeowners’ insurance company, or another party, the case can likely be resolved through a settlement. However, these negotiations can be complicated and challenging.
A personal injury lawyer with experience in settlement negotiations can represent you and pursue a fair settlement in your case. Our lawyers have the negotiation skills and experience needed to advocate strongly on your behalf during settlement discussions. Call us to get started on your case.
The Settlement Negotiation Process After an Accident
In many personal injury cases, the insurance company for the responsible party pays the damages. As anyone who has ever dealt with an insurance company can tell you, the process can be long and difficult. Most insurance companies focus on protecting their bottom line and reducing the money they pay injured people.
Insurance companies may undervalue the cost of the injured person’s damages, deny the non-economic damages the person suffered, or even deny the claim without justification. Personal injury lawyers are experienced in insurance company negotiations. They can represent the injured person and seek the settlement they deserve.
What Happens During a Settlement Negotiation With an Insurance Adjuster?
When an injured person files a claim with an insurance company, they are generally offered a lower amount than originally requested. First, insurance companies often use tactics to get the injured person to settle for less than they deserve. There are usually a series of discussions about the amount of compensation the person will receive.
The insurance company’s initial settlement may not adequately cover the injured person’s damages. The injured person’s attorney may then make a counteroffer. This continues until both parties agree on an amount.
A personal injury lawyer with experience in insurance company negotiations will be able to explain your rights and options and help you make informed decisions throughout the settlement negotiation process.
To negotiate a reasonable settlement, your lawyer will need evidence to back up your claim for compensation. Some types of evidence include:
Statements from medical experts
Photographic or video evidence
Accident scene evidence
Vehicle repair estimates
Employment records showing lost income
