Should I talk to my insurance company after an accident?

After you’ve been in a car accident, you most likely will receive a call from the other driver’s insurance company. Even if you were at fault, they will contact you. Be careful with the information that you share. The best option is to hire an experienced car accident lawyer who can represent you in these legal situations. Understand that you aren’t required by law to speak to them in any way.

When to Talk

If the other driver was clearly at fault, it might be beneficial to speak to an insurance company, but never without your attorney present. Remember that it is their goal to pay you as little as possible. They will be looking for evidence that you were fault or part of the blame. Also, never speak about your injuries or say you’re fine. Never volunteer additional information, just answer the question that you were asked. Never guess at what happened either. Never give an insurance company any reason to question who was at fault or the extremity of your injuries. With the help of a professional car accident attorney, you can ensure that your legal rights are protected every step of the personal injury lawsuit process.
