After an accident of any kind—whether it is an automobile, motorcycle, or bus crash—you will be receiving calls from the insurance company of the other side. Our clients often ask us, “Should I speak to an insurance adjuster after a motorcycle accident?” The answer is always no, it is not in your best interests to do so. Unless your lawyer advises you otherwise, you should never speak to an insurance adjuster after a motorcycle accident. Anything you say to them can and will be used against you in an effort to downplay the severity of your injuries and personal injury claim.
Should I Speak to an Insurance Adjuster After a Motorcycle Accident? | Investigation
When you are recovering from the accident, sometimes even when you’re still in the hospital, the insurance company adjuster will call you asking for a recorded statement. You are in no way obligated to talk to them. You could tell them that it was indeed you who was in the accident, but after that, you don’t want to answer their questions. They will not give you fair questions to answer. Everything they ask you will be geared towards their own goals. They want to be able to drop your case or reduce the compensation they give you and they will twist your words to accomplish that. When they call you, you can refer them to your attorney.
