State Farm Insurance Company
State Farm is an insurance group that provides insurance coverage throughout the United States.

State Farm was founded in 1922 by retired farmer made insurance salesman George Jacob “G.J” Mecherle. First founded as a single-line auto insurance company, State Farm has moved on to provide nearly 100 products and services in five different forms of businesses. Some of these insurance plans provide coverage for things like:

  • Auto Accidents

  • Boating Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents

How To Negotiate An Injury Settlement Claim With State Farm Insurance
Many State Farm policyholders often ask our accomplished attorneys a variety of questions regarding how to negotiate with an insurance adjuster. Some of these frequently asked questions include:

  • What is the best way to negotiate with an insurance claims adjuster
  • What are some tips to negotiate with an insurance company
  • Do Insurance Companies have my best interest in mind
  • How Can I negotiate an Injury Settlement Claim With State Farm Insurance

While these companies may appear to be concerned for you and your loved ones injuries and damages they are still companies at the end of the day and will make an added effort to give you as little leeway as possible in receiving a claim for compensation. Listed below are some tips for negotiating with an insurance adjuster:

  • Communicate your settlement offer to your adjuster: Once you have understood the cost and scope of your losses, you should then use this information to arrive at a settlement amount that will properly compensate you for your damages. This includes everything involved in your injuries, such as medical bills, ongoing treatment costs, pain and suffering, and a loss of wages. For instance, if you were involved in a car accident, when making your car accident settlement claim it is best to go beyond whether your vehicle was a total loss. Make an added effort to describe and calculate all the damages that were caused by accident.
  • Expect the “back and forth,”: In almost all circumstances, your claim adjuster will likely reject your settlement offer at first. They will try and make a counteroffer that is far beneath your initial request for compensation. This tactic is common amongst insurance adjusters and is used to determine how much ‘fight’ you have in you, and whether the claim can be settled quickly. It is highly recommended that you ask your adjuster to justify the amount they are offering.
  • Know matters to your insurance adjuster: Even if your damages are quite extensive, insurance adjusters rarely care about your situation. They are most likely concerned about the financial status of State Farm; essentially how much money they are going to have to shell out to keep you satisfied. For this reason, it is, important to make your insurance adjuster aware of useful facts that would amount to State Farm paying a lot more money if they do not agree to your settlement amount. These facts can include things that would be useful in a trial setting, and also demonstrate that you are not going to settle your claim for much less than its worth.

With these useful tips and a lawyer who is an expert at dealing with State Farm insurance and other insurance providers, you can more than likely reach a compensation claim that better suits your needs. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not act fairly, and if you try and fight them on your own, you will more than likely end up with the short end of the stick, as they will give you an offer far below your needs. That is why you will need the skills of a qualified lawyer experienced in State Farm Insurance cases so you can receive the compensation you deserve.
