If you end up getting involved in an accident, you’ll more than likely get a call from the at-fault driver’s insurance agency. Often enough, the call seems innocent. Just a nice adjuster, asking you for a statement. Don’t be fooled. The person on the other end of the line is a trained professional. They might seem like they have your best interests at heart, but they work for the insurance company. Their loyalty lies with the guys who sign their paycheck, and it’s their job to help the insurance company pay as little as possible for your claim. The best way to do this is to use your own words against you. Anything you say could be used as an excuse to deny your claim.
Never Give A Statement
Each adjuster has their own tactics to get out of paying your claim. Your answer to an innocent “How are you doing today?” can be used to show your injuries aren’t as serious as you claim. They can also be looking for inconsistencies. Often, they will ask you misleading questions to make it seem as if you are lying about your claim. Regardless of what tactics they use, you should never give a recorded or oral statement to the insurance company. Any question they ask is often a cleverly disguised trap. If you were in an accident, you need another professional to help you take on the insurance company. A personal injury attorney has a vested interest in making sure you get the money you deserve. In fact, many personal injury attorneys don’t get paid unless you win your case. Don’t trust the insurance company to do the right thing.
