Question:

Should I talk to the insurance company after my accident?

Answer:

Dealing with the Insurance CompanyIf an insurance company calls you after a car accident, especially if it’s the other person’s insurance, be very careful what you say. The fact of the matter is, they can only record you if they ask you, but be very careful. I always tell people not to give them a statement. You need somebody there sitting with you who can hear the questions, make sure they’re appropriate questions and make sure that the information they want to get from you is information they’re allowed to have.

Insurance companies hire adjusters that are trained to ask questions to which there’s no good answer. They record it and type it up, and they use it against you. Don’t get caught in that trap. Before you talk to the other person’s insurance company, make sure you have someone experienced by your side.

If your insurance company wants to talk to you, you need to cooperate with them. They’re the ones that are trying to help you get your car fixed, and take care of those basic things. If the other person’s insurance calls you, I wouldn’t talk to them; not unless you have a lawyer ready to go.

If you answer unfavorably, you can miss out on full justice for your case. We want you to know that once a decision is made and settled upon for your case, there is no going back. When dealing with the insurance company, we need to do it with care knowing that this can make or break your one opportunity to receive full and fair compensation.

You can receive damages for your past and future medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The more severe your injuries are, the more your case tends to be with worth. We fight for every penny to be sure that what you end up with is full and fair. The insurance company knows that you only have one chance and they will use all their tools and tactics to save themselves money, thereby washing their hands of responsibility for the injuries and damages that you suffered.
