Following an auto accident, you may feel pressured to comply with questions and requests that are made. The aftershock of the collision and the feeling of helplessness that follows can make a person overly compliant. However, it is important to know that your actions and responses after an auto accident can set the tone for the claims process. If you are involved in an accident it is best to first speak with an experienced attorney who will advise you on how to best handle the circumstances of your situation.
What Should You Do?
Following an accident, you will be approached by an insurance adjustor who may seem like they are looking out for your best interests, however, be aware that this is not the case. This individual works for the insurance company and their primary objective is to save their company and client as much money as possible. During this process, the insurance adjustor can use any action or statement you make against you. Maintaining your silence will ensure that you do not compromise your case.
