Car accidents occur very often on the roads today. In fact, most people will be involved in some type of automobile accident during some time in their diving career. If you have been in a car accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation. The laws governing car accidents differ from state to state, which is just one reason seeking advice from an attorney is crucial.
After you are involved in a car accident, an insurance adjustor representing the other drivers involved will most likely contact you and seek to get a statement from you over the phone. They may even make you an immediate offer in an effort to settle the case. What you must remember, however, is that you are in no way obligated to speak to any insurance adjustors. If you are not represented by counsel, simply refuse to talk to them, and if you are, refer them to your attorney.
Insurance companies will do everything in their power to deny you the compensation you deserve. If they do make you an initial offer, it is most likely much, much less than you are entitled to receive. Insurance companies are business, seeking to make a profit. The quicker they get rid of your case, the less money it costs them. Any offer they may make is in an effort to pay out as little money as possible to you.
