How to deal with the insurance adjuster after a Leesburg FL slip and fall.

If you've been hurt in a Leesburg Florida slip and fall accident on someone else's property, your phone is likely to ring within a few days of your injury. When you answer the phone, the insurance adjuster making the call to you will be nice. The adjuster is likely to be interested in your accident, your injuries, and your recovery; she may even be sympathetic to your pain, financial loss, and inconvenience.

But make no mistake about it. The insurance adjuster is not on your side; it is not the adjuster's job to look out for your best interests. Instead, it is the insurance adjuster's job to save money for the insurance company, which employs her by paying out the least amount of money possible to you. It is the job of a Leesburg Florida slip and fall lawyer to protect your rights, to be on your side, and to look out for your best interests.

While you should not interfere with the insurance company's investigation and resolution of your claim, the law does not require you to speak directly with the insurance adjuster. If you have retained a Florida injury lawyer to represent you after your slip and fall or other accident, you can refer the adjuster to your attorney and your attorney will handle all communication with the insurance company.

In the end, this can prove to be very important for your legal and financial recovery. For more information about how a Leesburg Florida slip and fall injury claim works, you can give me a call directly on my cell at (352) 267-9168.

I have loved helping people in need for almost three decades.  It has been my privilege to serve people as their pastor, chiropractor, and lawyer.  The current focus of my legal practice and life’s passion is helping the seriously injured receive complete compensation for their injuries. I am a Florida Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney. What that really means is that I am no stranger to the courtroom.  I have successfully tried and handled serious cases in state and federal courts.  My backgrounds in both law and chiropractic medicine have given me a unique perspective, extensive knowledge, and wide experience to serve those I represent. For years as a chiropractic physician, I treated my patients to alleviate their pain and suffering. Now as their lawyer, I fight to bring them financial compensation for their pain and suffering. During my years of service, I have handled many traumatic injury cases ranging from the traumatic amputation of a limb to brain and spinal cord injury.  I consider it an honor to serve you and your family. When a person entrusts me and I accept to represent them, I don’t take that relationship and responsibility lightly. My approach is that we work as a team. We are partners and our goal is the best outcome for you and your family with the highest level of communication throughout. I am always available by phone or email to discuss my potential representation of your injury case. I handle cases throughout Florida.
