What NOT to do After a Car Accident
Don’t talk to insurance agents or the defendant’s lawyers, and do NOT sign anything before you hire a personal injury lawyer, ideally, with the crew at JT Legal Group.
Insurance companies and attorneys will try to downplay your claim, offer you a low-ball compensation offer, or trick you into admitting liability. Avoid these pitfalls by getting the help of an experienced Los Angeles and Glendale car accident lawyer with the resources, expertise, and grit to stand up to insurance adjusters and their attorneys all over California
Don’t admit liability, to the police or to the negligent driver that caused the car crash. While you should call California state police after a car accident, never admit liability that could (and will) be used against you:
Don’t give or sign recorded statements of any kind, and don’t give anyone except your trusted injury lawyer access to your data and medical history. Ideally, give us a call even before the police come: we’ll help you give the most convenient witness statement, and walk you through the whole ordeal from thereon.
Don’t admit liability, to the police or to the negligent driver that caused the car crash. While you should call California state police after a car accident, never admit liability that could (and will) be used against you.
Don’t speak to the insurance company. They’ll press for a meeting or manipulate you over the phone to admit liability or downplay the seriousness of your injuries. Get an attorney! We’ll come to all meetings with you and protect your claim from day one.
If they “kindly” offer medical advice, never accept! Insurance companies and lawyers protecting at-fault drivers can have ‘gray zone’ private deals with doctors, aimed at shorting your injury assessment. Always talk to your doctor, to qualified ER personnel, or to experts your injury attorney recommends.
