Q. I don't need to hire an attorney. I can trust the adjuster to help me. Their TV ads say they are my friend. Right?

Insurance companies spend a lot of money on friendly advertising asking you to think of them as a neighbor you can rely on to lend you a helping hand. The "at-fault" driver's insurance company is very experienced at handling auto accident claims. The adjuster's goal is to settle your claim as cheaply as possible. Unless you are an experienced claims processor, you should hire an Attorney to represent your interests (to be your Advocate).
