How to Deal with the Insurance Company of the Person Who Caused Your Injuries
Most people are unsure what to do when the other person’s insurance company approaches them. Claims representatives and insurance adjusters from the other person’s insurance company will call, send letters, want you to sign authorizations, ask for a recorded statement, or even come to your house. Speaking with the other person’s insurance company is not in your best interest and will only cause you more problems.
The attorneys at RG Injury Law recommend not communicating with the other person’s insurance company before you have legal counsel. We can help protect your rights so you get the full amount of money you deserve for your injuries. The other person’s insurance company will try to get information from you to show you deserve less. Talk with us first!
Should I give a recorded statement to the other person’s insurance company?
Many people do not like to say “no” to the other person’s insurance company. They feel like they have nothing to hide and that their case may be damaged if they do not give a recorded statement. That is not true.
DO NOT give a recorded statement to the other insurance company.
The insurance company will ask questions in ways that are designed to get certain answers that will hurt your case.
They will get you to limit your injuries when you probably do not even know the extent of the injury at this point. The insurance company will sometimes twist your words to their advantage.
