When Negotiating a Georgia Car Accident Claim

- Your mindset - Listen as much as you speak. Allow the adjuster to explain why he or she made a low offer. Don't sigh or otherwise express disbelief while the adjuster is talking. You should be listening and thinking about appropriate questions or comments; and
- Your medical bills - You should know if you'll have to repay your health insurer or car insurer if you receive a settlement. You should also know if your settlement will have to be used to directly pay medical bills.
