How to Negotiate an Injury Settlement with an Insurance Company

When a person is injured in an accident, one of the first things they do is file a claim with their insurance company. Policyholders trust that their insurance company will give them the compensation they need to cover past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and more.

However, this isn’t always the case. In fact, the insurance company will likely always find a way to give you the least amount possible to protect their bottom line. When this happens, it is best to negotiate with your insurance company to try to get the best possible outcome.

Negotiating with Your Insurance Company

Negotiations with insurance companies should be strategic and thorough since it is likely that your insurance adjuster will point out weaknesses about your claim. You should present an organized demand letter and proper supporting documents that state your case. As part of your demand letter, you should mention the settlement amount you are looking for. An experienced attorney can help you determine how much that amount should be, and they can help you with the negotiations. 

In some cases, the negotiation process might consist of only a few phone calls, but in other cases, they will try to counterclaim your case.
