How can one build a strong slip and fall personal injury claim when dealing with insurance adjusters?

When communicating with insurance adjusters, it is important to present a strong slip and fall personal injury claim so as to realize the maximum amount of compensation. The plaintiff’s medical records are an integral part of the personal injury claim and the evidence provided to the insurance company. One’s medical records are a significant aspect of the slip and fall case because it is a crucial factor in deciding the severity of the plaintiff’s injuries, and how much the claim is worth.

Because insurance adjusters work for the insurance company, they do not always operate in the best interests of the plaintiff. The insurance company and its adjusters frequently attempt to underestimate the seriousness of the plaintiff’s injuries in an effort to lessen the amount of money paid to the plaintiff. Because the value of the slip and fall claim is dependent on the plaintiff’s injuries and the relevant expenses, insurance adjusters will attempt to find fault with the medical records in order to lower the amount of the settlement.

Insurance adjusters scrutinize medical records, and look for medical opinions of physicians that endorse the description of the injuries or the degree to which the plaintiff claimed that he or she was disabled. They also search for remarks made by doctors that support the plaintiff’s claim that he or she suffered a permanent injury as a result of a slip and fall accident. In an effort to discredit the plaintiff’s claim, they will inquire about previous injuries and pre-existing medical conditions that may have contributed to the fall.
