Do You Need to Call Your Insurance Company After an Accident?

Do You Need to Call Your Insurance Company After an Accident?

Many people try to take it upon themselves to call an insurance company and try to deal with them after an accident. Regardless of which insurance company you are dealing with, you need to be careful. The entire personal injury claims process is not designed to work in your favor. Therefore, you should hire a personal injury lawyer to communicate with any insurance company.

Whenever you contact any insurance company, there are minefields that you may not even anticipate. The same can be true when you are dealing with your own insurance company. You never quite know when something you say can cost you the ability to receive financial compensation or lessen the amount of the check.

Your Lawyer Should Speak for You

When you hire a lawyer for your accident claim, they will do the speaking for you. They know exactly how to handle any conversation with an insurance company, assuming that it is in your legal interest to have one. Your lawyer will present your side of the story in a careful manner that advocates for you while avoiding any common mistakes that people make.

In terms of contacting your insurance company, you should have an attorney do it when it is necessary. To be clear, there is no need to contact the other driver’s insurance company. They are out to undermine your claim at all costs, and there is no good that can come from talking to them. If the other driver’s insurance company tries to contact you, refer them to your attorney and do not speak with them.
