Dealing With Insurance Companies After a Car Accident (Part One)

By Breyer Law Offices on October 19, 2009

As personal injury attorneys in Maricopa County, Arizona, people often ask us how to file an insurance claim after an auto accident. We like it when people ask us this question because it typically means that they have not filed an insurance claim yet. This also means that they haven’t spoken to their insurance company either. Even better. We always tell people that if they’ve been seriously injured in a Mesa car accident, or a family member has been killed, before doing anything (including talking to your insurance company), consider hiring a personal injury attorney first.

Why You Shouldn’t File a Claim Before Speaking to an Attorney
Filing an actual claim is really quite simple. It is usually requires a phone call to your insurance company to get the ball rolling. The problem comes in when your claim is complicated, like in a case where you’ve been seriously injured or a loved one has been killed. Some insurance companies will try to take advantage of the situation and gather information on you before you’ve had the chance to hire an attorney. So while the process of filing a claim may seem easy, you could be making a big mistake if your car accident was serious and you haven’t hired a lawyer yet.

Many times, insurance companies will take what you say in such a phone call and try to twist it to their advantage. An experienced Mesa personal injury attorney can prevent this from happening and will try to limit statements from their client to the insurance company. Also, by involving an experienced attorney right off the bat, you’re sending a message to your insurance company that you’re serious, which sometimes reduce the amount of gamesmanship played by the insurance company.
