Do I Need To Talk To An Insurance Agent After An Accident?
What if you’ve been in an accident, do you have to talk to the insurance company? Well the answer depends on who’s insurance company you’re talking about. If you’ve been in an accident and you’ve been contact by your insurance company, in most jurisdictions, the insurance contract that you sing includes a clause that required your to cooperate with your own insurance company. So, if you are contacted by your own insurance company, you are required to be cooperative and to furnish them information.
If you have an issue as to whether you may have criminal or civil liability as a result of your accident, you may be well advised to speak with an attorney before you talk to your insurance adjuster. If, on the other hand, the contact is from the other party’s insurance company, you are not under any legal obligation to speak with their insurance adjuster.
