When you’re hurt in a car accident, your first thought may be to turn to your insurance company. They should be there to support you when you’re hurt, right? Unfortunately, your case may not be so simple. 

You may instead need to watch what you say around the insurance company when giving a statement after an accident. If you’re concerned about your statement and what your insurance company may do, reach out to the lawyers at Kohan & Bablove Injury Attorneys to learn more about what comes next after a car crash. 

Insurance Companies Aren’t Your Friends 

Once you’ve been in a devastating accident, your first thought may be to contact the insurance company. Unfortunately, that may not improve your situation. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses, meaning your recovery is not the company’s priority. They’re instead focused on maintaining their profits and shares. 

Because of this, you may find yourself dealing with a low settlement offer or even a refusal. The insurance company may lowball your settlement, hoping you’ll be desperate enough to fund your recovery that you’ll take any settlement offer available. Because of this, consider discussing what your settlement is really worth with a reputable personal injury lawyer. 

Watching What You Say

Insurance companies won’t just lowball your settlement. They’ll try to place the blame on you for your claim’s failure. That can become a big problem if you say the wrong thing to the insurance company.

When speaking to the insurance company, it’s important to be careful of what you say to the adjuster. Anything you say can be recorded, and those records can be used against you. 

For example, you may have suffered a serious brain injury during a car accident. But you may have said you were partly at fault for the injuries. Because of this, your insurance company may claim you were responsible for your injuries, and they may use that to state you’re not due the amount you’re actually owed.

Your Damages through a Demand Letter 

You’re due funds for your losses after a car accident, but you may be unsure what all of your losses are worth. Your injuries may cause both economic and non-economic damages, covering the financial, mental, and emotional suffering you experienced. 

If the insurance company fails to give you the funds you’re due for your injuries, your lawyer can step in. They can help you gather evidence of what your claim is worth and write a demand letter for the suffering you experienced. If your insurance company still fails to compensate you, your lawyer can help you take your claim to court
