If you have been involved in a Malibu car accident, you may wonder where you should turn next. You will probably receive a call from an insurance adjuster for the other driver. It is important to remember that the insurance company does not work for you. The adjuster is interested in obtaining a quick settlement so that they can save money for their company. Many people mistakenly believe that they will be treated fairly by an insurance company. Then they make the mistake of trying to handle their own accident case. Once documents are signed, victims have waived any claims that they have, and they may not receive an adequate settlement.
