What Should You Say to The Insurance Company After an Accident?
Your insurance company needs to collect details from you after a serious accident to process the claim, but it’s not a good idea to provide more information than necessary.
If you recently sustained injuries in an accident, it’s natural to want to reasonably participate in the legal and insurance claim process.
Sharing information about your claim may be your first instinct if an insurance adjuster has reached out to you to get further information about your claim. However, don’t provide more information than necessary to the insurance adjuster or you could be exposing yourself to major risks.
Insurance Adjusters Are Not Your Friend
For this reason, you need to an experienced personal injury law firm like Pepper Odom to protect you before you say anything or sign any releases coming from the insurance company.
