Settle-It-Yourself Newsletter

Hello! Welcome to the October edition of Settlement Central's Newsletter. We are pleased to share this newsletter with you, as our business is helping people get satisfactory settlements for their personal injury claims.

In this month's issue we will take a look at conformation letters written to insurance adjusters. We want to encourage claim holders to make a record for themselves so that there can be no question later as to where you stand on various issues that will arise during settlement of your insurance claim. Making a record of your conversations now can increase your settlement award down the line.

As always, we will post our articles on our website as they are sent out in the Settle-It-Yourself Newsletter. Our readers will have a rich resource available to them, our hands-on battles with the insurance companies translate into useful and accurate information for our readers.

===================================================================

Throughout the progress of your treatment and personal injury insurance claim, you will receive a number of calls in which either the first party insurance adjuster or third party insurance adjuster tells you something, promises you something, agrees with you on something, or passes along some information.

You will want to confirm each such statement and make sure the other party is bound by what was said in the conversation. As soon as they hang up, make your notes. Then write a simple letter including your notes confirming what the insurance adjuster said or promised.

Don't worry about how your letter looks or spend time on making a fancy letter. Just put a few sentences together including what was said, make a copy for your own files, and send off the original to the other party to your conversation. You can send it via e-mail with a printed copy via mail for the most impact. Otherwise, use e-mail or send a printed version, but always make sure that you do have your own copy in your file.
