What You Should Know About Talking To Insurance Companies

Many insurers advertise their prompt response to customer-reported accidents. Some will even meet you at the crash scene. But make no mistake: this rapid response is not a customer service measure. It is more self-serving than altruistic.

Insurers make money by limiting their own costs and liability as much as possible. Therefore, they look for any evidence (including statements from policyholders) that will allow the company to reduce the value of a claim or to deny it altogether.

In the wake of an accident, you may need to report it to your insurer. But it is wise to avoid making any additional statements until you have discussed your case with an attorney. Any seemingly benign comments you make now could ultimately hurt your claim later on.
