Perhaps, but probably not, unfortunately. The adjuster has financial incentives to minimize your recovery. If this were not the case, why are initial settlement offers low? There are many ways the adjuster tries to do this. One common method is to minimize your medical bills by counting only what health insurance has paid on a reduced fee schedule and not the full charge for the bill, which the law requires. Also, be very wary of adjusters offering to settle a case early, before you have finished recovering, especially in the case of a spine or head injury.
