Following a crash, it is tempting to discuss the details with friends and family on social media. However, it is important to know exactly who to talk to after an accident. It is important to protect your rights to fair compensation.
People You Shouldn’t Talk To
Letting everyone know on social media like Facebook or Twitter the details of an accident may seem innocent. However, insurance adjustors are infamous for investigating social media accounts for incriminating evidence. Anything said will be used against you. Just like anything you say to the other insurance company will be used against you. This is why it is important to not speak to them. Let The Michael Brady Lynch Firm handle it. The other insurance company will try to compensate as little as possible. Therefore, don’t let them manipulate your words to their advantage. The insurance company will also contact friends, family, and coworkers of injured victims. Friends or coworkers may say something unintentionally damning about your recovery or events of the crash. An insurance company will use these details against you.
People You Can Talk To
There are only a few people that should be notified of your accident. The first person is your healthcare provider. A doctor can provide a detailed summary of any injuries following the crash. Any time there is a condition change, notify your doctor. Medical professionals take copious notes. These records support any claim. Besides talking to a doctor, it is important to notify your insurance company. It is important to do it before the other driver’s insurance company does. But, don’t sign anything without talking to a complex litigation attorney. Also, never give a written statement without guidance. This leads to the last person to talk to, which is an attorney.
