Should I talk to the insurance company after my car accident injury?
Is it a good idea to talk to the insurance company when you’re injured in an auto accident in Florida? Generally speaking, it is not a good idea to give a statement to an insurance company until you have competent representation. When clients tell me they gave a statement to the other driver’s insurance company, such as a recorded statement, I tell them that may well have been a mistake. If you gave them that statement before we are retained on the case, then we won’t have an opportunity to advise you about all of your rights and responsibilities. They may have obtained information that they might not have been entitled to.
Now, that being said, we cooperate 100% with insurance companies. We give them all the pertinent and material information to make the decision to pay the highest amount of compensation and do the fair thing toward our clients. We cooperate with the insurance companies, but when you are asked to give a statement to an insurance company, don’t give that statement until you have talked to an attorney. Don’t give that statement until you have contacted our office.
We will advise you on when, and on the circumstances to provide that information, and how that information is going to be provided to that insurance company after you have legal representation there at your side to be your advocate. If you have any questions about this, about whether you should give a statement, please contact Perenich Law Injury Attorneys. We’re here to help you through this process to make sure that you don’t have to deal with insurance companies on your own.
