Things To Remember About Dealing With Insurance Companies After An Injury Accident

If you have been seriously injured in an accident that you did not cause, you have the right to seek full and fair compensation for your medical care, loss of income, loss of earning capacity, property damage and other considerations. These damages are typically paid by the negligent party's insurance company, but the process can often be extremely complex.

It is an unfortunate truth that insurance companies systematically place their own profitability above the well-being of injury victims. They will routinely deny even the most clear-cut claims in an effort to avoid paying for damages that undeniably fall within the scope of the negligent party's policy.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you are dealing with an insurance company after being injured in an accident:

  • Be careful about the questions you answer from the insurance adjuster: Adjusters are trained to ask questions in a way that elicits a specific response that can be used to place blame for the accident on you. Don't get tricked into damaging your own case.
  • Don't sign anything: If anyone other than a police officer asks for your signature, don't do it without first having the document reviewed by an attorney. You could be signing away your right to full compensation or admitting fault for an accident you did not cause.
  • Talk to a lawyer: If possible, you should seek legal counsel before you talk to anyone from the insurance company. A good attorney will have your best interests in mind and will know how to respond to the insurance company in a way that protects your rights.
