If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, you should report the accident to your insurance company or the at-fault party’s insurer promptly, which will prompt a call from an insurance adjuster who will ask you questions about the incident.
Before providing a statement to the insurance adjuster, it is important to be prepared to make an accurate, detailed and consistent statement regarding the events leading up to and during the accident. You will also want to be able to describe the damage to your person or property and the expenses you have incurred as a result.
Because your statement can potentially impact your claim, it is a good idea to work with an experienced personal injury attorney to help you prepare your statement, particularly if you have been injured.
After your claim has been reviewed by the insurer, you may be asked to sign documents such as a medical release form or a release of your claim, as part of a settlement. It is very important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney first who will advise you against any action that would compromise your claim or prevent you from recovering needed compensation in the future.
