Should I Give the Claim Adjuster a Recorded Statement?

Accidents and resulting injuries cause a great degree of stress and anxiety and raise numerous questions and concerns. Keeping medical appointments, paying bills, and coping with employers during this time while one is injured is usually difficult, if not overwhelming. Insurance adjusters commonly attempt to secure recorded statements from claimants at this time in the midst of this confusion, even though they are not legally entitled to one.  Usually these statements are designed to minimize the size of the settlement that the insurance company will eventually have to pay, or even deny the claim outright. Do not agree to give a recorded statement at this time regardless how persuasive or demanding an insurance investigator or adjuster may be.

Should I Settle My Claim Right After the Accident?

A personal injury claim should never be settled right after an accident regardless what an insurance company tells you.  At this early stage, you do not have near enough information as to the exact nature of your injuries and what medical treatment you may still need.  Other issues such as lost wages and future disability also need to considered.  It is only after your injury treatment is complete and your claim is properly documented can settlement negotiations be commenced. Do not sign any binding documents at this time without first consulting with an attorney experienced in personal injury law.  Even if you choose to represent yourself with regard to your claim, seek legal counsel first for some good advice and guidance.

You Get Medical Treatment, While We Build Your Case

After we are retained, we will immediately begin collecting evidence pertinent to your claim and hire investigators and liability experts as needed to prove our theory of liability. Your focus will remain solely on getting appropriate medical care.  After you are released from your medical treatment, we will consult with all of your health care providers and often utilize medical experts to properly document all of your injuries. We will then demand fair compensation from the insurance company for all of your damages – past, present, and future.
