You And The Jones Act Insurance Adjuster
Never, ever trust the Jones Act insurance adjuster. These adjusters are taught to try and gain your trust. They try and get you to let your guard down - - then they use whatever you say to them as a basis to deny your claim. Big mistake.
The insurance adjuster’s job is to deny your claim - - not help you get the medical treatment and money you deserve.
Don’t take leagal advice from the Jones Act insurance adjuster. Ever.
Don’t treat with any doctor suggested by the insurance adjuster.
You Have To Be Nice To The Insurance Adjuster
That being said, don't blow your relationship with the Jones Act insurance adjuster. Be Nice. But don't be too talkative and don't be rude. Be polite and only say as much as is necessary.
The last thing you want to do is motivate the insurance adjuster against you and your claim. On the other hand, don't get all chatty with the Jones Act insurance adjuster. Remember, it is just like criminal law: everything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. Depend on it. This is another reason to get a seasoned Jones Act lawyer.
