After an accident, insurance companies may call you to ask you questions regarding the severity of the accident and your injuries. This call is often made before you’ve had the opportunity to speak with an attorney. An attorney is hired to guide and educate you about your rights and the “dos and don’ts” of the case.
It is important that you do not give these companies any information regarding you or the accident without an attorney present, as it is their responsibility to inform and protect you. Although you do have an obligation to report an accident as soon as it happens, you are not required to give information, regardless of what they may tell you.
