Calling Your Insurance After a Car AccidentYou can expect your conversation with the insurance representative to be recorded when they call you. Any error you make during these conversations could lead to your claim being rejected or your compensation being reduced. During the negotiation process, the insurance representative might even come out with what might appear to be an attractive settlement offer; however, do not be tempted to accept it. It is always important to remember that representatives of insurance companies are only looking out for the interests of their company, not yours. Often, victims are convinced to accept settlement offers because they want to relieve the stress, or because they need money to cover medical bills. Accepting the first settlement could result in you settling for less than you deserve. An adjuster from the at-fault driver's insurance company will thoroughly investigate your car accident claim to avoid paying you a large sum of money. They will use any comments you make against you to deny or reduce your claim. Because of this, you shouldn't speak with an insurance company without consulting your car accident attorney first, since your attorney will be able to advise you on what you should and should not say.
