Legal Minute: Insurance Adjuster

You don’t need an injury lawyer.  Until you do.

One of those times is when an insurance company wants something for nothing.

After you’ve been injured – an insurance adjuster for the at-fault driver may call and want to talk – he comes to your house or meets you in hospital.  He asks you questions and writes down your answers. He has just taken your statement.

Then he asks you to sign it.

Why do the at-fault driver’s insurance company want the statement? What do it intend on doing with it?

Why do you give information but get none back?

Here’s the truth of it; the statement has only one purpose. To help the insurance company defend against your claim.

Should you give a statement? Maybe.  But probably not. You need to talk to a lawyer.

Remember, you don’t need an injury lawyer, until you do. When your words have the potential to hurt you, you do.
