3 Reasons You Should Speak to an Auto Accident Attorney Before Giving a Recorded Statement to an Insurance Company, Omaha, Nebraska

If you are involved in a car accident, the days following the event leave you understandably shaky, scared, and upset about what has just transpired. During this vulnerable time, it's typical for an insurance company to contact you and request that you give a recorded statement about the accident. This is a routine tactic on the part of insurance investigators, and The Law Offices of Terrence J. Salerno urges you to decline to participate until you've met with a lawyer. 

Based in Omaha, NE, Attorney Salerno's practice areas include automobile accidents, wrongful death cases, personal injury claims, and medical malpractice representation. Here he shares three reasons why you should talk to an automobile accident attorney before giving a recorded statement to an insurance company.

Why you should speak to an attorney before making a recorded statement about your automobile accident:

  • What You Say Can Be Used Against You: When making an official statement to an insurance investigator, you will be asked a series of questions. Any innocent answer you give can then be interpreted by the insurance company for their own gain and therefore endanger your case. Every word of it is recorded, so you need to be extra cautious. Attorney Salerno will guide you through the process of making your statement, ensuring you avoid any legally detrimental phrasing that could be misconstrued.

  • You Aren't Equipped With The Medical Knowledge To Give Details Of Your Condition: An insurance investigator will likely ask you questions about your medical state and the injuries you received in the accident. Unless you are a doctor, most people don't have the medical expertise to give clinical insight into their own injuries. And, again, the slightest slip-up can be used against you.
  • Your Legal Rights Are Of The Utmost Importance: An insurance company has a vested interest in paying out as little as possible, but you have a legal right to compensation if you are injured in a car accident. Auto injury attorney Salerno is dedicated to upholding those rights, and he will be present as you make your recorded statement, intervening if necessary to protect your civil liberties.
