What Should I say After an Accident?
The time immediately following a car accident can be the most crucial in determining the outcome of a potential lawsuit. As the dust settles, it's important to choose your words wisely and be deliberate, especially if you get a call from the insurance company. You should contact a qualified lawyer for guidance following an accident.
There's only one reason an insurance company wants to talk to you: they're hoping you'll slip up and give them ammunition. Inaccurate or conflicting information can be used to their advantage. Often they will ask a series of softball questions to get you comfortable, then they'll start working to trip you up. They depend on the fact that many people don't realize how their words can be used against them in court.
