After your car accident, the insurance company may try to get a recorded statement from you. Giving one could damage your claim, which is why you should consult an Atlanta car accident attorney from the start.
Here are 5 questions to ask the insurance adjuster before you provide a recorded statement:
- Will you admit liability, put that in writing and make sure it is signed by the insurance company?
- Can I get a recorded statement from the other driver?
- Will you promise to pay all of my medical expenses, even ones that may arise later on that are related to my accident, and will the company put it in writing?
- Will you settle my car accident claim and send a check within the next 30 days?
- Can I get copies of your investigation file for my case?
You can expect the answer to be no for each of these questions. That is the same answer you should give when asked if you will provide a recorded statement.
There are other things you should know about the dangers of providing a recorded statement, which is why you should be informed. Remember that the insurance company is looking out for is their best interests. Allow an Atlanta car accident attorney to protect yours.
