Be very careful.
You recently were involved in an auto accident, at no fault of your own, because the other driver was drunk driving, distracted while driving, impaired driving, or simply negligently driving. No matter the reason for the car crash, or how obviously at fault the other driver is, always be wary to speak with the other driver’s insurance company. It’s better to call an automobile or personal injury lawyer first.
These days, personal injury victims from car crashes begin getting calls and in person visits from the other driver’s insurance company very soon after the incident. You and your family are dealing with a lot at that time — medical bills, medical care, trying to get a rental car from the insurance company, psychological distress, and more.
While your first instinct may be to speak with the insurance agent and get them to cut the small check they offered you — beware. The insurance company’s goal is not to fully and fairly compensate you. Their job is to close your case. While it might sound good to get some fast money, its never enough and seldom fair. Once you settle you can never go back to get more money.
Always contact an auto accident and personal injury attorney like Attorney Charlie Donahue before speaking with the other insurance company. Attorney Donahue will handle the difficult conversations with the insurance company and has the experience to get the most compensation for your case. Charlie Donahue will emphatically represent your best interests and put the pressure on the entity that deserves it most — the insurance company of the driver who caused your physical, emotional and financial pain and suffering.
Remember, you should contact your own insurance agent to report the accident. I’m talking about talking with the insurance company of the person who caused the crash — be careful.
What you say to the insurance company after a car crash can, and will, be used against you – often times twisted against you.
