Charlotte Personal Injury Attorney Matt Arnold answers the question: “The insurance adjuster is saying I am partially negligent what does that mean?”
After a car accident in which damage is done to your vehicle, it is not uncommon to have to speak with your insurance provider and adjuster assigned to handle any claims that you are making. The insurance adjuster is responsible for taking care of preliminary matters that arise because of a claim. Usually, the adjuster will reach out to you fairly quickly to ascertain the facts that lead to the filing of an insurance claim. The adjuster is like a fact finder and will want to hear a statement from you to keep on file. The adjuster may then tell you that someone will be out to inspect the property. You might think that things are going according to plan because it seems like the insurance adjuster is on your side, but this is not true. There may come a time when an insurance adjuster is slow to respond to you, or may quit responding at all.
