Should I provide a recorded statement to the insurance company?
It is our strong recommendation that this not be done without legal representation so as not to jeopardize your claim. The reality is that insurance claims adjusters are skilled at asking questions that are designed to result in the reduction or denial of your claim. Insurance companies are businesses, and they are in business to make money. Their lawyers often try to use recorded statements in order to minimize or deny the value of accident claims. You need us to help you.
Should I inform the other party's insurance company about the accident?
To pursue the claim, the other party’s insurance company needs to be contacted. However, the other party's insurer — and likely your insurer — may take something that you said and manipulate your statement in order to minimize or altogether deny your accident claim. Again, contact us as soon as possible after your accident, as we can handle any further communication with the insurance companies to ensure no misunderstandings occur and you claim is not jeopardized. Also, if the other party's insurer contacts you for information, you are not obliged to make any statements. Instead, refer the insurer to your attorney.
Should I inform my insurance company that I was involved in a crash?
Yes. Waiting to notify your insurer could result in your accident not being covered. However, when you contact the insurance company, provide only the facts of the case and avoid making any statements about who was at fault. You should contact a personal injury lawyer before making any more statements to the insurance company.
