Mr. Bablove managed to help me receive the maximum payout possible from my auto accident. He was very responsive and made sure I got every bit of medical attention I needed. He’s a good guy, I would highly recommend him.

Upon being referred to the guys at Kohan & Bablove Injury Attorneys, I spoke with Jesse about my case, and from the get go he was super hands on and a genuine guy who treats you like family and cares for the well being of his clients. I would definitely recommend Jesse and his team to one of my friends or family members!

If you’ve ever been involved in a car accident without the benefit of legal counsel and feel you’ve been treated unfairly, then this blog post is for you.

Things You Can After Giving a Statement Prematurely

When you’re in an accident, it can be tempting to just answer questions from the insurance companies and immediately give a statement to get the matter settled. But in doing so, you could end up giving away any advantage you have.

Fortunately, there are still some actions you can take to protect yourself. The first thing you need to do is get a copy of the statement you gave to your insurance company.

Once you have read through and reviewed your statement, ask yourself whether it accurately reflects what happened or whether there are any mistakes that need correcting. If so, take advantage of a free consultation with our lawyers before making any changes.

Remember that not all car wrecks result in liability being assigned to someone else. If this is the case with your claim, then your lawyers may inform you that nothing more needs to be done.

How Your Accident Statement Determines Fault

When determining fault in a car accident, the insurance companies rely on your statement.

If you say that you were rear-ended by another driver, then they will look for other evidence to support that claim. If there is no damage to the back of your car but you say that there was an impact, then the insurance company may not believe you.

It’s to their advantage to determine who is at fault and to make sure they pay out the smallest amount of money possible.

They can’t do this without your statement because they don’t have any witnesses or footage of what happened. They need your help in order to determine who is at fault and how much money should be paid out to each party involved. That’s why what you say and do is so important.
