What You Say Can And Will Be Used Against You In A Personal Injury Case
Insurance companies are businesses that need to earn a profit to keep their doors open. They will look for reasons to deny or underpay your claim. One of the biggest mistakes you make is saying certain things that adjusters use as evidence that you were at fault or are unreliable as a witness or that otherwise undermines your claim. Adjusters are trained to solicit these statements from you.
This could include:
Guessing at facts such as speed or distance
Apologizing, even if you only intended to convey empathy for those involved
Admitting that you did not have 100 percent of your attention on the road
Talking about the last time you had something on your car repaired
Giving ambiguous statements, even as common introductions on the phone, like "I feel OK" in response to "How are you today?"
