Speaking with Insurance Companies After a Crash

Despite their kind words, insurance adjusters do not have your best interests in mind. They are trained to obtain the best possible result for the insurance company, which means paying out as little as possible regardless of a claim's value. Injured victims will often begin receiving phone calls as early as the day of the crash from an insurance adjuster wanting to ask questions regarding how the crash occurred and the extent of any injuries. At Burress Law PLLC, we advise all of our clients to never give a recorded statement after a crash. The trained adjuster is attempting to record your testimony before you have had a chance to reflect on what happened or know the full extent of your injuries. The insurance company will use the recorded statement against you to create doubt about liability or even to place a percentage of fault on you for causing the crash, in addition to minimizing your bodily injuries.
