Most accident or car crash victims assume they are required to give statements to insurance companies because they will be truthful.
However, accident victims have not experienced professionals and what may seem like the harmless conversation can be a legal trap.
An insurance company may call and say they need to take your recorded statement about how the accident happened and the severity of your injuries before they can make any payments.
Do NOT give them a statement.
An insurance company does NOT need a recorded statement from you before they pay your claim.
In many instances, the insurance company takes a statement in order to use your recorded words against you to deny or reduce your claim.
Our firm routinely settles cases with insurance companies without our clients having to give statements. An experienced lawyer can help to prevent an insurance company from tricking you into saying things that can hurt your case.
