Mistakes Insurance Companies Want You To Make After a Car Accident

Common mistakes can significantly impact the compensation you might recover after a crash. Unfortunately, countless individuals decide to navigate the process on their own, and it sometimes leads to mistakes that allow insurance adjusters to take advantage of the situation.

If you hire our team, we will protect you from these mistakes. Learn more about the things you should avoid below.

Moving Forward Without a Lawyer

Don’t go through the process without having a lawyer on your side. A lawyer increases the chances of seeking maximum compensation for your damages. Insurance companies look forward to dealing with claimants when they’re alone because they have a higher probability of minimizing or denying a claim. Before you do anything else, hire a lawyer.

Posting Damaging Images on Social Media

You may think that your social media profiles are private, but insurance adjusters have their ways of accessing information. They can see what you post. If you suffer a back injury in a car accident but post pictures showing yourself doing strenuous activities, it could damage your claim. Insurance adjusters would use these photos to diminish your claim’s value.

Discussing Your Crash with Insurance Adjusters

If you speak with insurance adjusters, make sure you stick to the basics. When they start asking other questions that could potentially harm your claim, it’s best to direct them to your attorney. Your legal team can help you avoid making comments that would damage your ability to seek the most compensation possible.
