If you were injured in an automobile accident, you may find that your phone begins ringing before you even get home from the hospital. The at-fault driver's insurance company will often call you as soon as possible, asking for a statement about the accident and your injuries.
Sometimes the insurance adjusters do this to trick you into giving information that will damage your personal injury case. At other times, they may offer you a small settlement, hoping that you will accept that limited amount of money instead of pursuing the true amount you deserve.
Tips To Remember When Your Phone Starts To Ring
I am Bart Durham. As a Tennessee personal injury lawyer with more than 35 years of experience, I highly recommend that you avoid speaking with any insurance companies except your own, and that you contact a skilled attorney right away. Here are a few things to remember when the other party's insurance company calls:
- Don't talk about the accident or your injuries.
- Don't accept a settlement offer or sign any papers without consulting a lawyer.
- Don't give the adjuster permission to access your medical records or record your statement.
