When You’re Frustrated, We’ve Got Your Back
Insurance companies are in the business of making money not paying it out. An adjuster’s job is essentially to find a way to underpay or deny your claim. To make personal injury matters even more complicated, insurers have their own way of doing things that is not very clear to outsiders.
Attorney Aaron Garrett began his career at a major insurance defense firm in New Mexico. He got an inside look at the way in which insurance companies approach a case. He knows the factors they consider and how they interpret that evidence. When building your case, he can anticipate their moves before they make them. We will also handle all communications and document exchanges with them, eliminating stress and headache for you.
