Should I Talk to the Other Driver's Insurance Representative? Dallas accident lawyer Amy Witherite answers crash related insurance questions
DALLAS, Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Question: I got hurt in a car accident last week. The accident was the other driver's fault. Fortunately, he has insurance. His insurance company's representative keeps leaving messages for me to call back for an interview. I don't know if I feel well enough to talk about things yet. Do I have to?
Answer: First of all, I'm sorry to hear about your accident. I hope you recover quickly.
You are lucky that the other driver had insurance. Even though drivers are required to have liability insurance, too many Texas drivers drive without it. The other driver's insurance representative is probably calling to find out the nature of your injuries and to hear you explain how the accident happened. If you are still feeling the impact of your injuries and/or still on pain medication for your injuries, it's probably best that you not talk to the insurance representative right now. Sometimes, those representatives ask questions in a tricky manner. They end up confusing the person they are interviewing or leading the person to say things he didn't intend to say. In some cases, the insurance representative tries to get the person to admit fault. This can be problematic because the insurance representative may record the conversation and then use it against the person at a later date.
