One of the most common questions we hear at Dixon Law Office when insurance is involved is just how much information you should give them. This is especially an issue when the victim has only just had the accident in question and is still in pain from the ordeal. Insurance companies love to strike during this time period when victims are most vulnerable. Don't make the mistake of thinking that their motives are in your best interests. Insurance companies are looking out for their own interests not yours no matter what they say. When it comes to giving a statement to the other insurance company, the best rule is NOT TO!
One of the biggest reasons to avoid speaking with the other insurance company involved in your situation is because insurance company adjusters are trained to get you to contradict yourself. Even the slightest of inaccuracies between the statement you give the other insurance company and the statements you have given during to a police officer will be used against you as an attempt to show that you are lying. And when you keep in mind the fact that these calls usually come very shortly after the accident in question when the victim is still in pain and hasn't had much time to gather their thoughts you can see why giving a statement is a terrible idea.
