Did the Adjuster's Job
When my husband was in an auto accident last year we were overwhelmed with things to take care of. Fortunately he wasn't injured badly so we were able to focus on replacing his totalled vehicle.
Our insurance company responded quickly sending a direct deposit amount to our checking account. After reviewing it carefully, we pointed out some features that increased the value of our vehicle and got a little more money. Then, we had to wait to get our $500 deductible back.
Three weeks later our adjuster said she couldn't reach the insurance company of the other driver who caused the accident. I asked her for the information and told her I'd get it myself and let her know.
All I did was call every day and persist in acquiring the necessary information. Within 5 days I did the adjuster's job, and was able to give the adjuster what she needed...what she failed to accomplish over the course of 3 weeks!
In the end we got what we deserved but not without some effort of our own that we feel should have been taken by the adjuster herself. Don't be afraid to take charge and get what yours by involving yourself in the process!
