No! One of the biggest mistakes our clients make is giving their version of events to an insurance adjuster when they are in pain and still trying to process what happened. Remember, insurance adjusters have one goal—to get you to settle your case for a small percentage of what your injuries are actually worth. They can—and will—use anything you say against you to reduce the amount of money they offer you. Why would you talk to an insurance adjuster when you can’t think straight and should be focusing on getting well?
At Ladah Law, we have found that it might be months before you fully understand the extent of your injuries and the full amount you have spent in medical care. There is no reason to engage in settlement discussion with an insurance agent in the weeks after a collision. Instead, hire a bicycle accident attorney right away who can communicate with an insurance adjuster for you.
