Don’t Talk to the Other Driver’s Insurance after a Car Crash
Don’t be tricked into jeopardizing your claim. Here’s why you shouldn’t talk to the other driver’s insurance adjuster after a car crash.
The real reason they are calling you.
When an adjuster calls you immediately after a crash, this usually means they know you have a case against them. The adjuster wants to pay as little as possible for your claim and contact you before you get a lawyer.
They are not your friends.
The adjuster may seem friendly and sympathetic, but their goal is to close your claim as quickly and cheaply as possible.
They do not want you to hire a lawyer.
Insurance companies know they will have to pay you a lot more money if you hire a lawyer. The adjuster will try to convince you that you will lose money if you hire a lawyer, but it is not true, and they are not trying to help you by telling you so.
They will try to get a recorded statement.
Adjusters are trained to take your statement in a way that hurts your claim. They will try to get you to incriminate yourself, say something that weakens your case, or twist your words and use them against you later.
They want you to settle quickly and cheaply.
Adjusters want to find out how little it will cost to make you go away. They will tempt you with a quick, lowball settlement before you know fully what your injuries are and how much your claim is worth. Until you have a lawyer, they will be discounting the true value of your claim.
It’s not worth the risk.
Don’t jeopardize your future or your family’s wellbeing. The insurance company is not on your side—you need a professional who is. Get advice and guidance from an experienced attorney before talking to an adjuster or making any decisions about your case.
