If you were injured in auto accident, watch this video about the car accident insurance investigation in New York to learn why you should call an attorney first.
The first thing that I tell clients, or potential clients, when they contact me with respect to any accident – whether it’s an auto accident, slip and fall, any accident whatsoever – is to please refrain from talking to any insurance company regarding either how the accident happened or the injuries that you may have sustained. It’s really important to know and understand that despite the fact the insurance company may seem like they are on your side, and they may have very polite and friendly adjusters contact you initially, those insurance carriers are in the business of paying as little money as they can for any claim. While you’re giving them information regarding your claim, they’re taking notes. Rest assured, the notes that they’re taking are going to be used against you. It’s very important to refrain; do not talk to any insurance company at any time. Those communications should go strictly through your lawyer.
