Attorney Frank Penney explains why he does not advise talking to an insurance company about your personal injury case. There are really 4 main reasons:
Do not speak with an insurance company in the aftermath of an accident. What you say to an insurance company after an accident can be used against you, and this is a common legal mistake. You can ruin your personal injury case if you file a car accident or personal injury claim before speaking to a personal injury attorney.
Hello, my name is attorney Frank Penney and this is the Legal Minute. Should you talk to an insurance company? The short answer is, no. The insurance company is not on your side. The insurance representative’s motivation is to pay the least amount possible or not pay at all. The insurance representative will take time to conduct a liability investigation and want to take a recorded statement which I do not advise. They will want to blame you fully or partially for the accident and will want you to sign an authorization to obtain all your medical records even if those records don’t apply to your case. The insurance representative will operate under the guise of being cooperative and reasonable, but don’t let that fool you – they don’t want to pay you much or anything.
