How To Negotiate An Injury Settlement Claim With Allstate Insurance Company
Clients who are trying to seek proper compensation from their Allstate insurance plan, ask our attorneys a broad range of questions about how best to negotiate with an Allstate, insurance adjuster. A list of these commonly asked questions is bulleted below for your reference:

  • What are the best negotiation tactics against Allstate Insurance?
  • What are the best negotiation tactics to use against Allstate Insurance for a car accident?
  • Do Insurance Companies like Allstate have my best interest in mind?
  • How do I settle an accident injury claim with Allstate
  • How do I negotiate with an insurance claims adjuster

Unfortunately, insurance companies are businesses, and they tend to operate as such. They may often say they are concerned for the damages that their policyholders have sustained, at the end of the day they will still make an added effort to lowball your settlement claim. For this reason, it is in your best interest to take note of the best way to negotiate with your insurance provider. Bulleted below are some tips to help you in negotiating with negotiating with an Allstate insurance claims adjuster:

  • Communicate your settlement offer to your adjuster: Once you have understood the size and scope of your losses, you should then use this information to arrive at a settlement amount that will adequately 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 counter offer 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 Allstate; 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 Allstate 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 tips, and the help of an attorney experienced in negotiating with Allstate or any other insurance provider, the odds of reaching a positive outcome for your case is in your favor. As previously stated, insurance companies, like Allstate, don’t always act in your best interest in mind, and if you try and fight them on your own, you will likely end up on the short end of the stick. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you seek proper legal representation so that you can receive the settlement claim that you deserve for your damages.
