You’ve been injured in an accident and need fair compensation. As Car Accident Lawyers we clearly recognize the pain you are feeling, complicated by the fact that you may not be able to work and have mounting bills. We understand the urgency and we are here to help you reclaim what has been lost. Make no mistake, the insurance company is not here to help you nor are they going to be fair. You need to understand that the insurance company is a “for profit business” and their main goal is to minimize what they pay out on every claim. They are not here to help. Consequently, if they contact you, it is best you do not speak to them as they will record what you say and use it against you later.
The insurance company’s job is to box you into a corner and minimize their exposure to you, ie. minimize what they will have to compensate you. The way they do this is to get you “on record” saying what appears to be innocuous facts but in reality are often harmful admissions. This is done by contacting you very shortly after the accident happens, pretending to be friendly and helpful and asking you to make a recorded statement.
A recorded statement should be your first red flag; why do they need to record your statement? Don’t do it! The reason is because they want to ask you leading and suggestive questions which are against your interest. Then when you answer their questions they have begun to box you in because you are now on record saying things that appear innocuous but in reality are harmful to you. Always bear in the mind that the insurance company is not your friend and you would be well advised not speak with them.
You are injured and you have legal rights which we will aggressively enforce for you. It is important to note that the insurance company is not in the business of giving money away and they are not your friend, so they will not be helpful. In fact, you may find them to be belittling and frustrating, conveniently forgetting that you are the victim in this case caused by their insured’s negligence. To that end, do not accept any low ball/settle your case now type offers which are only offered to get to go away early. Also, do not give the insurance company any recorded statements, they are just trying to get you to say something against your interest. Contact qualified counsel before making any statements to insurance. Having a car accident lawyer on your side is critical to your success. We will not accept insurance company behavior and we will be quick to enforce your rights in court, the moment we perceive the insurance company is not acting in good faith.
