One of the biggest mistakes that we see clients make all the time is giving a recorded statement to an insurance company in regards to their personal injury claim. When prompted by an insurance adjuster for details of the accident, we recommend that you never speak to them unless you were advised by your attorney to do so. If you give misleading information, the insurance company will use your statements against you.
Personal Injury Recorded Statement | Dealing with Insurance Companies
Our recommendation is that you do not give a recorded statement to the insurance company until you’ve had the opportunity to talk to an attorney. Insurance adjusters are trained to ask questions and get information that helps their case and hurts your case.
Personal Injury Recorded Statement | Other Mistakes to Avoid
Frequently, we talk to people about what mistakes have been made regularly in handling a personal injury claim. Some of those involve not getting treatment from the doctors, not following doctor’s advice, not contacting an attorney right away, and not contacting an attorney who is the right attorney for handling your case. You want somebody who has the experience with that type of case. You want a trial lawyer who is prepared to push the case as far as you need to get a fair resolution. Those are some of the bigger mistakes that people make in dealing with a personal injury claim in Arizona.
