Avoid the insurance company pitfalls that will directly affect your recovery; for example, do NOT speak with their insurance company when they call you. They will attempt to record everything you say and use that against you at a later time. The insurance company can be sneaky, they will even pretend to be your friend on the phone. Do not be fooled! They are not in the business of being your friend nor of giving away money. Any contact they make with you is for one purpose only, that is to minimize your claim for compensation. When they call and ask to take a recorded statement, it is only for one purpose, to use whatever you say against you in court. They are trying every trick to minimize your claim and use you to do it! Tell them you are not falling for their tricks; then pick up the phone and call us!
