When Insurance Companies Call
If you are injured in an accident, what should you say when insurance companies contact you with questions? You may not know the answer.
Dealing with insurance companies can be frustrating. Accident victims, like you, often do not know who they should speak to or what they should say. You may have been driving, or a passenger in a vehicle involved in an accident, or a pedestrian. What should you say?
Ask Yourself: Is the Insurance Company Calling Me Working in My Best Interests?
If you are in an automobile accident, a bodily injury adjuster from the “at fault” person’s insurance company may call you. Do not speak to the bodily insurance adjuster who represents the party responsible for causing your injuries. You may be asked to give a statement or sign documents allowing the bodily injury adjuster to have access to all of your medical information. Only your lawyer should communicate with the bodily injury adjuster. All medical documentation should be provided through your lawyer.
