After being in an accident of any sort, the first thing you will want to do is look for help wherever you can find it. Who can actually be your support system in such a difficult time, though? Can you depend on your own insurance company to be there and protect your best interests?
Every single insurance company ad you see today casts the insurer in a friendly, authentic, and smiling light. While it is true that plenty of good people work for insurance companies, it is also true that they are businesses that need to keep their lights on and doors open through profits. When it comes down to their bottom line and your recovery after an accident, you can safely assume they will be looking out for themselves.
With this in mind, you need to be careful about how you interact with your insurance company after an accident, like a car crash or slip and fall accident on someone else’s property. You need to notify your insurance provider about your accident at some point, sooner than later. However, what you say and how you say it is important. You must be mindful about saying or doing something that could increase your own liability, especially if you were in an accident that did not involve another party. Otherwise, you could end up footing some large bills that your insurance provider decided were not covered under your policy.
What are you supposed to say to your insurer after an accident if you cannot just say anything without worry of unintended consequences? It varies from one accident to the next. When you are not sure what to say, it is best to err on the side of caution and rely on a personal injury attorney to do the talking for you.
