What if the insurance company calls me for a statement?
If you get a call from the other party’s insurance company saying they want to take a recorded statement to discuss your injuries, we suggest a simple answer for them: “No.” You are required to cooperate with your own insurance company, but you are not required to talk to the at-fault party’s insurance company about your injuries (it is ok to discuss the details of your property damage – – just not your injuries). The insurance adjuster may sound friendly and helpful, and their request may sound sincere. But they have an ulterior motive: to get you to say something they can use against you later. They’ll look for anything they can use to reduce or even deny your claim. If they call you, tell them to contact your personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Dianne L. Sawaya, LLC. The law says that if you have an attorney, the insurance company isn’t allowed to talk about the details of the injuries sustained in the accident. They must talk with your attorney.
However, as mentioned before, you must comply with your insurance company. While you may be confused as to whom to talk to, your attorney can always be there to help guide you in the direction. Contact the Law Offices of Dianne L. Sawaya, LLC today to get started.
