Protecting Your Rights
An insurance adjuster may contact you soon after your accident. It’s important that you don’t speak with the insurance company or sign any settlement offers. If you do, you could:
Decrease your settlement amount.
Signing a settlement offer means you’re not eligible to receive further compensation for the accident. Many settlement offers from insurance companies aren’t enough to cover the full cost of the accident, including medical bills and lost wages.
Forfeit your rights to all compensation.
If you speak with an insurance adjuster, he or she may twist your words to make it seem like you’re at fault for causing the accident. Don’t forfeit your rights to getting the money you’re owed.
Be required to pay money to the other driver.
In some cases, the other driver’s insurance company may actually pursue damages from your insurance. Even if the the other driver caused the accident, any statements you make could sound like an admission of guilt and may be used against you.
Our auto accident attorneys can speak with the insurance company on your behalf and make sure the record of the accident and your injuries is accurate and fair.
