3 Things You Shouldn’t Say to the Insurance Company

3 Things You Shouldn’t Say to the Insurance Company

If you suffered injuries in a car accident, you will need your insurance company’s assistance to pay your medical bills and repair your vehicle. However, insurance companies often have their bottom line in mind, not your deserved compensation. For such reasons, it is important to communicate with your insurance company after a car accident strategically. Our Huston car accident attorneys explain what you shouldn’t say to your insurance company after a car accident.

1.Avoid Contacting the Insurance Company Immediately After the Accident

It is essential no to contact your insurance company immediately after an accident. You might be in shock, confused, and under a great deal of stress, so you might not be in the best position to explain clear facts to your insurance company. It is important to note that you and the insurance company have different objectives. Their goal is to close your case as quickly and for as little as possible, while yours is to get the compensation you deserve.

2.Avoid Saying It Was Your Fault

Another thing you should avoid saying to the insurance company is that the accident was your fault. When you describe what occurred during the collision, you should only state the facts without adding personal details or opinions. It is the insurance company’s responsibility to investigate your claim and determine the cause of the accident. Even if you are found at fault, the other driver may have also contributed to the accident and also be at fault.

3.Avoid Stating That You’re Not Injured

If you haven’t seen your doctor before calling your insurance company, you shouldn’t state that you weren’t injured when you talk to your insurance company. While some injuries are readily apparent, others might not appear until days or even weeks later.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you have the right to seek the compensation you deserve. Contact our Houston car accident attorneys today at (888) 273-1045 to schedule a consultation!
