Should I talk to the insurance adjuster after an accident?
Many clients are surprised at how quickly insurance adjusters for the at-fault party contact them after an accident.
- The insurance company for the at-fault party is not your friend; their goal is to minimize your claim and pay you as little as possible.
- Be careful what you say to the insurance adjuster, as it could be recorded and used against you later.
- It is advised not to talk to the insurance adjuster immediately after the accident; instead, get a free consultation from an attorney first.
- You are not legally obligated to talk to the insurance adjuster, and they cannot condition a settlement upon you talking to them.
