NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In the wake of an automobile accident, drivers obviously want to see their insurance claims resolved swiftly and fairly — something that requires them to communicate properly with the insurance company. To guide this process, the personal injury attorneys at I Accident Lawyer have released a statement to the press, providing some dos and don'ts for engaging with auto insurers.
"First, we recommend contacting the auto insurance company as soon as possible after the accident," says I Accident Lawyer. "Know your coverage and exclusions before calling them. Take notes of all conversations with the insurance company, and also maintain any receipts for expenses incurred as a result of the accident. If possible, take good, high-quality photos of the accident scene, including photos of all vehicles involved."
As for don'ts, the car accident attorneys at I Accident Lawyer caution against lying to the auto insurance company. "Also, don't sign any waivers or releases until you have them reviewed by an attorney. Don't make any statements without your attorney present with you to object to any questions that could be detrimental to your case. And, don't agree to any 'final payments' unless you are truly ready to do so."
