You’ve hired an attorney, but the insurance adjuster is calling you directly, and you’re wondering whether they can still do that. Insurance adjusters will typically resist calling you directly, but there is not a rule prohibiting the other side’s adjuster from doing so.
They may not know whether you have hired an attorney. If they do contact you directly, it will most likely be in writing. This way, the communication can be forwarded to your attorney intact, as opposed to relying on you to retain and process information spoken to you over the phone. Be on the lookout for any such communications in your mail.
You should respond by immediately letting them know that you have hired an attorney and providing the appropriate phone number. You should also let your attorney know they should be expecting a call from the other side’s insurance adjuster. Watch the video to learn more.
