Personal injury attorney in Tampa, Edward Reyes discusses on who you need to speak to after a car accident and what information you shouldn’t disclose.
Should you speak to the insurance adjuster? The answer is it depends. It depends on who you are speaking to. If it’s the other person’s insurance company, the person that crashes into you, or the person that calls you the harm, NO. Don’t speak to them at all. The only time you can speak to them is if there’s property damage and you can only speak to them about property damage alone just to coordinate to go see the car or go see the actual thing that injured you. Beside that, there shall be no talks with the other side’s insurance company.
With your insurance company, you do have a contract to speak to them as well. But if you hire the Reyes firm as an attorney, we can do a recorded call together to make sure that your insurance company doesn’t go out of line asking you questions. You definitely need to talk to your insurance company because you have a contract with them. Keep it very general as far as your injuries but go in details about what happened in the accident. That way, they can help defend the case in case something gets wrong.
