Can I Provide Any Information to the Other Driver’s Insurance Company?
The attorneys at Schiller and Hamilton explain that it is important that you give them your name and address. You can tell them where the vehicle is located so they can go look at the vehicle. However, if you are injured in an automobile accident it is advised not to give any type of statement for several reasons.
Firstly it is going to be recorded. Secondly, insurance companies have adjusters who are trained to misdirect, confuse and twist your statement to make it more favorable for them. An adjuster is hired to minimize the loss for the at-fault party’s own insurance company. Giving a statement to them before speaking to a lawyer can be very detrimental to the ultimate outcome of the case. Insurance companies have lawyers working for them as well. Therefore it is highly recommended that before giving any type of statement to the other party’s insurance company that you call a lawyer first and schedule an appointment to meet with them to discuss the facts of the case.
