SHOULD I PROVIDE A STATEMENT TO AN INSURANCE COMPANY AFTER AN AUTO ACCIDENT?
If you were injured in an accident, or are a witness to an accident, you do not have to give a statement to an Insurance Company. Many auto insurance companies try to call a people involved in a car accident after the incident to ask them questions about how the incident happened or to discuss what type of injuries that might have occurred. While these questions may seem relatively innocent, they are being asked for specific reasons and will used against you if possible. Even if you didn’t do anything wrong. Insurance companies often record these statements and use these statements in order to minimize the value of your case and thus offer a low claim settlement, or even to reject your claim altogether. Consequently, most car accident attorneys strongly advise against giving any statements following a car accident.
First Call An Auto Accident Attorney
Instead of speaking with the insurance company following your accident, you should probably talk with a lawyer who is experienced in handling auto accident cases. By allowing your attorney to handle the insurance company’s questions you will be able to focus on recovering from your injuries. Attorneys know how to deal with the insurance companies and know how much information is necessary to turn over. Giving away too much information, such as a medical authorization form, may harm your chances of a fair settlement.
BENEFIT OF HIRING AN ATTORNEY TO HELP ON YOUR CAR ACCIDENT CASE
One of the benefits of having a lawyer represent you in a car accident case is that when you are represented, the insurance company cannot contact you directly. If they want to ask you questions about your case, they must go through your Attorney. At the Pascoe Law Firm we fight to protect your legal rights. The insurance company is not your friend, they have one objective and it is not to make sure you are okay. They make money by limiting damages and trying to not pay the fair value for your injuries and property damage.
We have experience handling Texas car accident cases involving almost every auto insurance company and have dealt with insurance defense attorneys from all parts of the state. We know the rules and we know the tricks these companies use to reduce the amounts they are obligated to pay you.
