Insurance Negotiating Tactics to Watch for After an Accident
When you’ve been involved in a car crash, the insurance company plays a crucial role in your pursuit of compensation. Unfortunately, though, insurance adjusters are not always easy to work with. To ensure you aren’t given less than you deserve, it’s helpful to understand the insurance negotiating tactics to watch for after an accident.

The Different Tactics Insurers Use While Negotiating
When the time comes for you and your attorney to seek compensation for your car crash damages, you shouldn’t be surprised if the insurance company makes the process difficult. Insurers’ top priority is to protect their bottom line, and unfortunately, they’ll often go to great lengths to do so.
Some of the ways they may try to steer you away from the compensation you truly deserve include the following:
- Refusing to communicate with you about the status of your claim
- Insisting that the first settlement they offered was the only amount they are willing to give, even if it was less than what your claim is really worth
- Disputing the validity of your claim
- Insisting that the claim is still being processed every time you speak with them
- Refusing to explain why your claim was denied
