Car insurance companies can (at times) take good care of their clients, but anyone who is not a client of a particular car insurance company is actually a threat to that company’s business. This relationship stems from the reality that if a car insurance company’s client injures you in an accident, you have the right to sue the client and his or her insurance company for damages.
Therefore, you are other peoples’ insurance companies' enemy!
For this reason, you should never talk to another person’s insurance company about a pending car accident claim.
Why You Should Never Talk to Another Person’s Insurance
Car insurance companies exist to make money, which means claims made against car insurance companies directly oppose the companies’ goals. Car insurance companies will look for any reason to pass responsibility from their clients to other drivers, and one of the ways they do this is by calling those injured by their clients’ actions.
If you are injured in a car accident, you will likely get a call from the other driver’s insurance company telling you that you have to talk to them about the case.
However, this is a lie.
You have no legal obligation to talk to someone else’s car insurance company after an accident. Unfortunately, many people believe they have to talk, and they typically end up incriminating themselves of accidents they didn’t cause. That’s why anyone involved in a car accident should speak with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney about their case before they deal with an opposing insurance company.
