Should I talk to my insurance company after reporting the accident?

Shortly after an accident, you’re obviously going to call your insurance company to report the incident. That’s okay and you should do that. I encourage you to do that. After you do that, you should speak to the insurance company about the damage to your vehicle if you’re looking to get your vehicle repaired.

The next step you should do is contact an experienced, knowledgeable law firm that handles only personal injury matters. Here at the Grossman Law Firm, that’s what we do. It is critical that you do not speak to your insurance company at that point. You call us for advice because what is your insurance company going to do?

Well, the claims reps are trained to become friendly with you, right? What they’re going to do is they’re going to record the conversation. Anything you say, they will use that against you in the future. The insurance company is not your friend. The insurance company is a for-profit institution. We here at the Grossman Law Firm, we will be your friend. Call us. We are here to help you. We’re here to guide you through this confusing process.
