The prospect of having to submit an insurance claim when your property was damaged or you were injured in an auto accident can be overwhelming. You may not know where to start, or what your rights are, or what to expect. Insurance companies often are large corporations with large bureaucracies, and dealing with them might make you feel lost. The good news is that you don’t have to go it alone. You can seek the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer to help with the process and take some of the pain out of pursuing your claim.
If you haven’t yet talked to a lawyer, we’d like to offer some tips in the form of some insurance claim do’s and don’ts to keep in mind until you have representation.
Most people think that insurance companies are there to help you after an accident. In fact, that’s what they’re supposed to do, but the problem is that insurance companies are running a business. They’re there to make a profit. That’s what everybody has to remember in an accident, that insurance companies are in the business of taking in premiums, and what they try to do is pay out as little in claims as they can.
A claim is somebody, perhaps like you, who’s been injured and needs money from the negligent party, the person that caused you an injury. So insurance companies often try to sweet talk you, or butter you up after an accident in the hopes that you won’t get a lawyer, or in the hopes that you’ll just immediately settle with them.
Before you’ve talked to me, or any other lawyer, do not disclose too much to the insurance company. You can give them some general information, but the best course of action is to talk to an attorney before you give too much away.
