Do I Have To Speak To The Insurance Company?
The aftermath of a personal injury accident can be unnerving. If for example you were injured in a car accident, you may be receiving phone calls from an insurance adjuster. People understandably want to know if they need to speak with the insurance adjuster who is calling. The answer is no, they do not have to.
In fact, it is always a bad idea because whatever you say will be manipulated by the insurance company to maximize their chances of paying you as little as possible for your injuries. Of course, they want nothing more than to deny your claim entirely. Therefore, do not play into their hand, and refuse to say anything to the insurance company that insures the driver who caused your personal injuries, until you have spoken with an attorney.
Please keep in mind this applies to not only auto accident claims, but also bicycle crash accident cases, slips and falls, and all other types of injury cases when there is insurance involved.
Also, the adjuster will be nice to you in order to befriend you, and to convince you that they just want to be fair with you. Nothing could be further from the truth. The adjuster wants to get rid of you with as little money as possible, before you get an attorney.
Since nearly every personal injury lawyer gives free consultations, it makes sense to consult with one prior to speaking with an insurance company.
