A windshield is often the only thing standing in the way of you being seriously injured while driving. As the only barrier between you and debris such as rocks and blown-out tires, it is critical to being able to drive safely. When your windshield shatters, either due to a crash or debris, you count on your insurance company to reimburse you for the damage so that you can make the necessary repairs and get back on the road. However, many people find that their windshield claims are denied, despite having paid for the coverage. Without having your claim approved it can cost a thousand dollars or more to have your windshield replaced, which is prohibitively expensive for most drivers. The good news is that you are not out of luck. An experienced windshield claims attorney can help you to get the coverage that you need so that you are able to get back on the road without having to incur a huge financial burden.
How a FL Windshield Claims Attorney Can Help
We pay for insurance every month, so we expect it to be there if we ever need it. However, it is important to remember that our goals and expectations are at odds with those of the insurance company. Insurance companies would profit far less if they paid the full amount of coverage to everyone who filed a claim. Insurance claims adjusters may seem friendly and like any other customer service agent, but they are employed by the insurance company, so their goal is not to help you, but rather to find ways to deny your insurance claim or to settle it for as little as possible. For this reason, it is important to be incredibly cautious when talking and sharing information with an insurance claims adjuster.
An attorney can take over negotiations with an insurance claims adjuster to ensure that you do not fall into any of the common pitfalls and get the maximum insurance coverage that you are entitled to for the damages that you suffered through no fault of your own. Many insurance companies note whether you are represented by a lawyer and make you a higher initial settlement offer if you have legal representation because they do not want to incur the greater costs of a lawsuit, so having a lawyer from the start can yield fast and effective results and may allow you to avoid even having to go to court. An attorney also knows what a fair and reasonable settlement is and will help you to make sure that you do not accept a low-ball offer and get the money that you need to make all necessary repairs.
