Car accidents happen every day. Whether a driver is temporarily distracted because their phone rang, they are going too fast for road conditions, or they are incapacitated by drugs or alcohol, they can be held responsible when you suffer an injury. After a car accident, you should see a doctor immediately. However, you must never have any discussion about your injuries with an insurance company. While you should report the accident to your insurer, under no circumstances should you make any type of a statement. Always avoid having a discussion with an insurance adjuster without contacting an attorney, particularly if you have suffered a serious injury.
The reason you should avoid making a statement is liability. Insurance adjusters are in the business of protecting insurance companies by getting the lowest possible estimate of damages. The problem is, any questions they ask you will be part of their efforts to deny your claim, prove you were not seriously injured, or prove you might have been at fault for the accident that caused your injury. We can help make sure insurance companies are doing the right thing by making sure they are meeting their obligations under the contract they have with you, the consumer.
