Don’t make these insurance mistakes after a car accident

Nobody wants to be part of a car accident, but this could happen when you least expect it.

You will have a lot on your plate after an accident, such as focusing on your injuries and overall level of health. Along with this, there will come a time when you need to turn your attention to insurance related matters.

Unfortunately, many people make insurance mistakes after a car accident. Here are some things that you should never do:

  • Don't provide a written or recorded statement until you know exactly what you are doing. Anything you say to an insurance adjuster could come back to harm you in the future.
  • Don't accept the first estimate that you receive. You have the right to do so, but this could mean that you are leaving money on the table.
  • Don't sign anything. Don't be surprised if you are presented with a waiver or release. While there is nothing wrong with reading this in an attempt to understand your situation, don't sign on the dotted line.
  • Don't accept payment until you know exactly what it means. For instance, a payment that is marked as "final" means that the insurance company has no intention of paying you any more money.
  • Don't forget to review your policy. You pay a lot of money every month for car insurance. If you need to make a claim, your insurance company is required to live up to its side of the contract.

Along with all the above, there is one last thing you need to avoid: communicating with insurance companies without legal assistance on your side.

You may believe that hiring an attorney will complicate your situation, but nothing could be further from the truth. With a legal team on your side, you'll find it much easier to understand your situation and make decisions that allow you to receive as much compensation as possible.

Many people before you have made insurance related mistakes after a motor vehicle accident. These can be difficult to avoid, but there are things you can do to put yourself in a better spot. Let an attorney step in and guide the process from beginning to end. This will give you peace of mind.
