Do you know what to do after a car crash? Do you know who to call? Do you know who you should or shouldn’t speak to? The answers to these questions could determine whether or not your case is properly handled. Here’s car accident attorney Jessica Applegate Edmonds to tell you why speaking to an personal injury attorney is a better idea than trying to go it alone in your car collision case.
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, you should absolutely call your insurance company first. A lot of insurance companies have policies where if you don’t notify them within a certain period of time then they try to exclude your coverage. I would call a lawyer before talking to the other insurance company first, because they may try to take a recorded statement of you. They may try to get information that we don’t necessarily think they should have right away, and it’s in your best interest and the best interest of your case to call a lawyer first. If you haven’t called a lawyer yet and the other insurance company calls you, I would tell them that you’re looking for a lawyer and that you plan on getting a lawyer because that’s the most important thing for you to do so you can be protected from start to finish, because we have your best interests at heart and they don’t. The dangers of talking to the other drivers’ insurance company before you call a lawyer, is that they are going to ask you what happened in the wreck, what your injuries are. They’re going to ask you all these questions and they will be recording that conversation and they may not tell you that they’re recording it, and the reason they may not tell you that is because they don’t want you to say no. But you don’t need to give them any information except for perhaps your name and that you’re looking for a lawyer. The most important thing for you to do would be to call us so we could help guide you through the process from start to finish. To speak to somebody about your injury, call 1(888) WE-FIGHT.
After a car accident, a lot of things are going to be happening. You will have to deal with the police, insurance companies, and the other people involved in the collision. The entire situation can get confusing, but knowing who you should talk to is going to be your top priority. Should the other person’s insurance company be at the top of your list of people to talk to? No. You do not have to give a recorded statement to the other driver’s insurance company immediately following the wreck. That insurance company isn’t looking out for you, its agents could be recording your conversation and trying to twist your words so it can pay you less. This could prevent you from getting the compensation you need, and that’s not fair.
