I RECEIVED A CALL FROM SOMEONE ELSE’S INSURANCE COMPANY AFTER MY CAR ACCIDENT. DO I NEED TO SPEAK TO THEM?

If you have been involved in a car accident, and the other person in the accident has car insurance, expect to receive a call from their insurance company after the accident. The person who calls is usually an “adjuster,” and they are trying to investigate the accident to see who is at fault and to determine how much, if anything, to pay you (if their driver is at fault). You are under NO obligation to speak to the other side’s insurance company! If you have an attorney, tell them to contact your attorney. If you don’t, you can politely decline to speak to them.

If you decline to speak to the other side’s insurance company, the adjuster will probably tell you that they can’t properly investigate your claim and will not be able to pay you. But don’t worry, because in our experience, the adjuster probably won’t be offering you what you think your case is worth, so it’s better to just get an attorney on your side to fight for the compensation you deserve.
