After being injured in a car accident, it’s important to file a personal injury claim with the insurance company. However, insurance companies are only looking out for their best interests.
For instance, State Farm claims and USAA claims are only working towards what will be in favor of State Farm and USAA. Anything you tell to an insurance company claims adjuster can be used against you.
