Being involved in a car accident creates a variety of physical and financial problems for the parties involved. Immediate medical expenses coupled with on-going therapy are both physically and financially draining. Additionally, the cost of car repairs can be costly depending on the severity of the car crash.
The problems created by an auto accident may seem overwhelming but it is important to avoid making mistakes that may compromise your claim against the other party and his or her insurance company. The biggest mistake that people can make is talking to the other party’s insurance company.
Insurance companies operate by spreading the cost of accidents and injuries among policyholders. They earn greater profits by collecting larger premiums while keeping costs down. One strategy for keeping costs down is to deny insurance claims. This may be achieved by getting non-policyholders to admit liability and therefore avoid incurring the cost of that accident or injury. It is important for parties involved in accidents not to admit liability to the other party or the other party’s insurance company. The best way to avoid making such a mistake is to forego talking to the other parties insurance company altogether.
