If you’ve been in an accident, you are likely to get a call from an insurance company adjuster, maybe two. After a car accident injury you may be wondering what you should or should not say or if you should say anything at all. It may be time to contact a New Iberia car accident attorney to advise you on the best course of action.
There is no rule requiring you to give a statement to the representative of the other party’s insurance company. If you have an injury claim, you can and should refuse to speak to the other party’s adjuster unless you have consulted with your New Iberia personal injury lawyer.
There should not be any harm in talking with your own insurance company’s adjuster. They are usually there to help you. It may be in your best interest not to give a recorded statement unless absolutely required, and if you must give a recorded statement, it is advisable to have your New Iberia attorney present to protect yourself.
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you need a personal injury attorney to help protect your interests. Contact the attorneys at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess for a free consultation. We are a no win, no fee firm. Call today!
