What Should I Say To the Insurance Company After a Car Accident?
Here’s a Quick Question. Do you know what to say to the insurance company after you’ve been in a car crash? I’m Rob Rosenthal with AskTheLawyers.com. And this is what Philadelphia attorney Stewart Eisenberg says.
“Nothing. But that’s a short answer. Insurance companies are not your friends. You can tell the insurance company and you have to report accidents to insurance companies. You can tell them you were involved in an accident, and you can tell them when it occurred, who was involved, what police department was involved, but don’t get involved in talking to them about how the accident happened, about what you did or didn’t do, what the other person did or didn’t do because they’re recording that or they’re taking notes on what you’re saying, and if something has happened to you that you’re not fully aware of what happened, it’s immediately after something that happens to you traumatically, it’s best to seek a lawyer and not an insurance company, especially the insurance company for either the workers’ compensation carrier or the liability carrier for someone who has caused your injury.
