Working With Insurance Companies After An Accident

After an accident, you might assume that insurance companies are working to protect your best interests. After all, you pay them a monthly fee to protect you. This is a common misconception — insurance companies will often try to pay you less than what your case is worth. Their priority is to keep their money within their company.

Fay Law Associates was founded to fight for justice for clients. We are here to answer your questions, help you obtain the highest quality medical care, and thoroughly develop and document your case. Our mission is to win your case for the highest amount and in the fastest time possible.

Common Mistakes To Avoid

  1. Many clients automatically assume that when the negligent party has insurance, we will go after their insurance company. This is not always the case. Instead, we will tailor our approach guided by how this accident will affect both insurance policies.
  2. Talking to the police after an accident is a good idea. You should feel free to answer their questions and state the facts, but you do not need to answer any questions that admit you are at fault. The police report will be a crucial piece of evidence for the insurance companies.
  3. Discussing your accident with friends and family can harm your case. Listening to nonlawyer advice can cause clients to make mistakes in the legal process or not to pursue lawsuits or insurance claims when they have a valid case. After an accident, an attorney is the best choice for protecting your best interests.
  4. Be careful what you say or sign. Your insurance company may record calls with you to use as evidence or ask you to sign forms that release your medical records to them. They may also ask you to see one of their doctors. These tactics may be presented as essential to receiving your settlement money, but they are not always in your best interests.
