You or a family member got injured? Now you may be wondering about how tort adjuster California works and what your next step should be. Generally, if you have a claim against an insurance company, the insurance company will use the services of an adjuster or employee to negotiate against your or your lawyer in order to settle, resolve, or deny your legal claim.
Tort Adjusters Explained
Tort adjusters work on the behalf of the insurance company and generally do not have the best interest of the Plaintiff in mind, because they generally work to protect the interests of the Defendant (Tortfeasor).
Why You Should Have A Lawyer
For that reason, it may be extremely helpful and critically important for you to have the best aggressive civil plaintiff tort and accident lawyer on your side to fight back against the insurance company’s insurance adjusters. In addition, many times the adjuster of the insurance company may be giving you the run around or giving you a hard time because they might know that you have not got a lawyer to help you.
How Tort Adjusters Think
The insurance company would generally know that you are not represented by legal counsel or a lawyer because if you are represented by a law firm that law firm generally will provide a letter of representation to the insurance company informing them that you have hired the lawyer or law firm and that you are being represented by legal counsel.
Benefits of Having a Tort Lawyer
Upon learning that you have a lawyer, the insurance tort adjuster in most cases should no longer communicate with the injured person any longer without the consent and approval of the victim’s lawyer.

Time Is Of The Essence
It is generally always a good idea to speak with an attorney immediately. There are many reasons why is it is a good idea to speak with an attorney when you have a tort accident claim or other legal case.

Tort Adjusters Are Not On Your Side
You cannot simply go by what the insurance adjuster tells you because they are not really on your side, but are rather getting paid by the insurance company and want to keep their job and so they work to further the best interests of the insurance company that they work for which can be drastically against you and your best interests.
Do Not Believe Everything You Hear
Some tort adjusters may be friendly and work with you to obtain mutual beneficial results, but that is not generally the case. You really should always speak with a lawyer that wants to fight for you to get the best results, has a successful and aggressive track record, and takes the time to learn all about your case and the pertaining law in order to present your case to the insurance company in the best way possible in light of the facts and circumstances that led to your injury.
Difficulties In Tort Claims
Sometimes even attorneys may face many difficulties in settling your case with the insurance tort adjuster for your tort claim and a proper settlement might not be able to be reached prior to litigation. In those situations, the attorney generally evaluates the strength of your case carefully in light of any new evidence of information the adjuster might have provided or any other facts that may have arisen due to police reports, medical records, autopsy reports, death certificates, news stories, or other sources of information in order to determine if taking your claim to litigation and actually filing a lawsuit against the insurance company is a good idea for your claim.
