Q: Why would an claims adjsuter suddenly say that all further communication must be directed to his/her attorney?
I have an attorney.Just didnt think to ask her.
I appreciate the lawyers response,though you are correct.You dont know me or my case.I have never spoken to this claims adjuster.I was given a new adjuster for reasons that I am not aware of.
As far as being rude to this adjuster,my previous comment speaks for itself.I asked a direct question.You sir,seemed to think I had something to do with the decision.
No disrespect,but I would not want you defending me in a workers comp case.
A: Absolutely it could be for any number of reasons one being that they don’t like talking to you or they feel that you are belligerent door in someway hostile and they don’t want to speak to you any further. Another reason possibly is that you have a lawyer and you’re not allowed to speak to the adjuster when you’re represented and they do you want you speaking to their lawyer. So to make a long story short if both sides have lawyers the lawyers talk to each other if the injured worker doesn’t have a lawyer many times the adjuster will talk to you unless you become obnoxious and then they’ll help you get a lawyer so they don’t have to talk to you. I mean nothing disparaging about this answer to you because I don’t know you all I can do is speculate

A: If you are represented by an attorney, the insurance company and their attorneys are NOT ALLOWED to speak with you without your attorney's presence or permission. If you have an attorney, there should be no reason to call the adjuster directly. EVERYTHING should be handled through your attorney.
