What Should I Tell the Insurance Company About My Accident?
It is common for anyone involved in an accident to ask the question “What should I tell the insurance company about my accident?” If you suffered injuries in an accident, you can file a claim to recover damages when the crash was caused by the negligence of someone else.
Car accidents can involve many complicated elements, especially if you were injured. This means that it is important to contact a qualified attorney from Colley & Colley, LLP to help you secure all the financial compensation you are entitled to.
Contact Your Insurance Company After a Car Accident
It’s important to contact your own insurance company soon after the accident, even if the crash was not your fault. Your insurance company will contact the negligent driver’s insurer and gather police and medical reports to confirm the cause and fault of the wreck.
An Attorney Can Protect Your Rights
After you reach out to your insurance company, it is wise to contact a lawyer from our firm to protect your rights and file a personal injury claim that will help you recover compensation for your injuries.
It’s crucial to avoid making official statements that may be detrimental to your case. Never make any statements regarding your health to the other driver or to the police or insurance companies. Many serious injuries, such as a spinal injury or a traumatic brain injury, may not appear until days or weeks after an accident. Medical treatment is expensive, and you want to be assured that you can recoup financial damages to pay for your treatment and recovery.
It’s also critical to never admit full or partial fault. Many accidents are not what they seem, and after an investigation, it may be determined that the other driver or an external third party caused the accident. A car accident lawyer from our firm can handle all of the communications and negotiations with the insurance, so that you can focus on your recovery rather than dealing with the insurance.
