Should I Talk to the Insurance Adjuster After a Car Accident?
If you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by another driver, it’s likely that shortly after the accident, you’ll start to get calls from the
insurance company for the other driver. The insurance adjuster will likely want to take a statement from you, may want you to sign a release to give
up your medical records or employment information, or may even offer you some money in exchange for signing a release of your legal claims.
Please understand that you’re under no obligation to talk to that adjuster, and it’s really a bad idea to do so. The other adjuster represents the
other driver, not you, and because of that, the adjuster is looking for information to benefit the other driver, not you. So when you get the call
from the insurance adjuster, please understand that you’re under no obligation to answer that call, you’re under no obligation to sign
anything, and it’s usually a bad idea to do either one. Instead, you should get advice from an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible
