Florida Car Accidents: What Should I Do If an Insurance Company Approaches Me About My Injuries?

If someone from an insurance company approaches you about your injuries after a car accident, it is advisable not to speak to them until you have first contacted an attorney. Also, under no circumstances should you sign any documents from an insurance company without speaking to a lawyer first as well.

Insurance companies could possibly try to catch you without your lawyer in an attempt to get you to say something that can be detrimental to your case in the future. Even what seem like innocent comments can potentially hurt your claim down the line.

Be safe and make sure to have a lawyer present each and every time you speak with a member of your insurance company or have an attorney speak to them on your behalf.

Sometimes, insurance companies will also request that you sign documents without your lawyer present. This may be a medical release, to have full access to your medical records, or settlement papers in an attempt to settle your claim. No matter what it is, and no matter how insignificant it seems, do not sign any documents without the approval of your lawyer first.
