Insurance Claims Adjusters who routinely handle personal injury claims from car accidents are getting tougher in paying claims. The result may be the opposite of what the claims adjusters intended. More and more personal injury claimants are hiring attorneys to represent them. The claim costs the insurance company more money the moment a claimant gets an attorney. Getting tougher on personal injury claim evaluations will cost the insurance company more money in the long run. "A greater percentage of claimants are getting attorneys to represent them in their personal injury claims, and this is costing insurance companies more money in the long run," says Albuquerque attorney Mark J. Caruso. Caruso is among a growing number of attorneys who only handle personal injury claims. As a former insurance company attorney, Caruso knows both sides of the claim. "I used to represent insurance companies, but now I only represent claimants against insurance companies." Clients who have successfully used Caruso as their attorney note that it was advantageous to have an attorney who knew the strategies of the insurance adjusters and their attorneys. Attorneys who have battled Caruso in cases note that he knows the ins and outs of the personal injury claim, and he is extremely knowledgeable and prepared for battle. He is licensed in both California and New Mexico and has been practicing law for 28 years.
