Ask the adjuster if he or she is offering legal advice to you
Only attorneys are permitted to offer legal advice in the state of Florida. The adjuster works for the insurance company, not for you. The only way to make sure the offer is fair is to consult with an attorney before accepting a settlement.
Ask Someone You Trust
With all the advertising and information available about attorneys, it is sometimes difficult to know with whom you should consult. Ask someone you trust about the attorney you are considering consulting with. Ask if the attorney lives in your area. Ask whether they actively try cases, and how many cases they have handled like yours.
