Is It OK To Give Statement To Insurance Company After Car Accident MN



Our car accident lawyers are asked this question every day. Is OK to talk to the insurance company after the accident? The answer really depends on the situation. First of all, if you are going to make a claim, the insurance company at least needs basic information. They obviously need to know the date of the accident, what happened, and where is your vehicle. Ultimately, they also need to know what is the damage to your car and if you were injured. They can’t help you if you don’t give them some basic information. Also, if you are making a claim with your auto insurance, your policy requires that you cooperate, or you could lose coverage.

Having said that, you SHOULD NOT give any insurance company a recorded statement. If they ask for a recorded statement, you should talk with a lawyer first.  A recorded statement is more likely to be used against you than an insurance adjuster’s notes of your conversation. The specific details of the accident and your injuries can be important. However, you may not be thinking clearly at the moment. For example, you may have a broken arm and a sore knee, but only talk about your broken arm because it is the more serious injury at the time. Because of that, you may have more difficulty later getting compensation for your knee.
