SHOULD YOU TALK TO LAWYER BEFORE REPORTING CAR ACCIDENT CLAIM TO INSURANCE?
The answer to this question really depends on the seriousness of the accident. In many cases where there is just vehicle damage, there is no reason to talk to a lawyer before reporting the claim to the insurance company. However, if you have been injured in a MN car crash, it is probably a good idea to talk to a lawyer first. You need to understand your rights before talking to any insurance company (yours or the other car’s).
In either event, don’t give a recorded statement to your insurance or the other driver’s insurance until after you have spoken with a lawyer. Another situation where you should talk to a lawyer first would be if there is any possibility of criminal charges against you or anyone in your vehicle.
Most importantly, if you were seriously injured in the car accident, it is better to talk to an experienced lawyer before talking to the insurance company. The insurance coverage issues can be complicated and you need to know your rights. It is very possible to harm your interests if you say the wrong thing or say something the wrong way to the auto insurance company. An experienced car accident lawyer will know make sure you get all available benefits and compensation.
