Information and Phrases to Avoid
The aftermath of a car accident can be very stressful, especially when dealing with insurance companies. If you are involved in an accident, three things you should never share are:
#1: Contact information for family, friends, or doctors.
Many insurers will ask for this information as secondary contact information but you are not required to give this to them.
#2: “I don’t have a lawyer.”
If you admit to not having a lawyer, your claim may not be taken as seriously as others who have legal representation.
#3: “I accept the offer.”
Ultimately, insurance companies exist to make a profit. They do not want to give you the full amount of compensation that you need, so do not accept any settlement offer without having an attorney carefully review the terms.
