What to do when interacting with insurance companies:
- Speak with our Fort Lauderdale auto accident attorneys to advise you on
how to deal with your and the other party's insurer
- Speak with your insurance company and let them know you were in a car accident.
You should take notes of every conversation with them
- Read your insurance policy so you can know what you are covered for. An
attorney can help you understand your policy
- Collect information on the insurance company from anyone else involved
in the accident along with their personal contact information
- Hold on to any receipts or records that can apply to your insurance claim
so you can ensure you are being fully compensated for your expenses
What not to do:
- Do not make a statement to the other party’s insurance company. Whatever
you say can come back to hurt you.
- Do not give the insurance company any written information about your accident,
either yours or the other party’s involved
- Do not wait to file your claim after your accident. You may exceed the
statute of limitations if you wait too long
- Do not sign anything such as a release, waiver, or any document without
consulting with our firm which may sing away your rights
- Do not take any money as it may be less than your case deserves
