Should I talk to the insurance company after my crash in California?
A question that I often get asked is, “Is it a good idea to speak to the insurance company after I’ve been involved in an incident or I have sustained an injury in California?” My answer is always no. The reason you retain a lawyer is because that lawyer, in many ways, becomes your voice in advocating to the insurance company and, if it gets that far, to a jury of your peers.It’s never a good idea to speak to the insurance company unless and until you have to. We have found that any statements that are given prior to retention of a lawyer, or even after, can often be twisted and can be used to argue things that you never meant to assert in the first place.
