Let Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Handle Communication with the Insurance Company

Posted on in Personal Injury

A personal injury lawyer does much more than just filing legal paperwork after you’ve retained him for an injury you’ve sustained in a car accident. Your lawyer can help advise you on any matters that arise throughout your case, and advise you on how to handle a number of different issues. The biggest component your lawyer will help with is handling the insurance company that you'll be going up against.Communicate with Insurance Company

One of the first things you'll have to do after you've been involved in a car accident is to communicate with the insurance company. You really have no choice but to do so right away, even before you've retained your lawyer.

Choose Your Words Wisely

The problem is that you have to be very careful in what you say to them. Even if you make mention that you may slightly be responsible for the accident, they could, and usually, will turn those words against you. As soon as you're able, seek legal representation so he can take over communications with the insurance company.

But, until then, it's best to give short and simple answers to the questions asked by the insurance company. Avoid adding extra information that could be twisted into an entirely different scenario. You'll no doubt be emotional, but try to avoid expanding on what happened. Details provided based on emotion is dangerous in the world of personal injury law.
