Who should I call first when involved in an accident?
When you are involved in an accident it is common practice to speak to the insurance company of the other parties involved. The adjuster assigned to your claim will be friendly and provide you with great customer service and a sense of compassion. It is very important to remember the goal of the insurance company is to pay out as little as possible for claims.
This is why it is important to contact an attorney BEFORE you provide statements to the insurance companies handling the claim for the for the alleged individuals that caused the accident. An attorney can advise you on what to say to protect the integrity of your claim and help you get the fair payout you deserve.
