I was recently involved in an auto accident and it turns out that the person that hit me has the same insurance company that I do. Is this a good thing?
Not necessarily. Regardless of who the insurance company that you are fighting against is, the insurance adjuster will only be looking to make the company money. But when the two parties have the same insurance company the adjusters will probably try to low ball both parties because that is what would be in the company’s best interest.
When you have different insurance companies they will fight against each other to get the most money for their own client. Without someone to fight against your insurance company will try to get away with offering you far less than you deserve. If you are in this situation, don’t hesitate to call an experienced Seattle personal injury lawyer who will be able to let you know if they will be able to get you a better settlement.
