How to Recover Compensation After a Car Accident
Mississippi is an at-fault car accident state, so injury victims must file a claim with the liable party’s insurance company to receive compensation for their damages. After a car accident, you should exchange details about insurance and your contact information with the other driver. You will likely be contacted by the other driver’s insurance company concerning the collision, and recovering compensation will involve negotiations with them. Car accident cases don’t always go to trial, but it is possible that your claim could progress to this point.
Should I Speak with the Other Driver’s Insurance Company?
Following a car accident, you may be contacted by the other driver’s insurance company.
You should never speak to the other driver’s insurance company without your attorney. It may seem like the insurance company is calling to help you resolve your claim, but you must remember that they have their own interests in mind. They will do whatever they can to pin blame on you and avoid paying your claim. Without an attorney present, the insurance company will most likely try to take advantage of the situation.
If the insurance company asks you to provide a recorded statement, you should decline. Although you may think that you will be able to present your own story in a recorded statement, the insurance company will still attempt to twist your words to serve their own interests. You should not provide any type of communication to the other driver’s car insurance company without first consulting your lawyer.
