Q: Should I talk to the other party’s insurance company?

A: If you have not already done so, it is generally best not to discuss your case with anyone other than your attorney and your treating physicians. Statements that you make to others are not privileged and they may and will be used against you to reduce the value of your claim. Our firm will communicate with the insurance companies on your behalf. After all, that is one of the reasons you are hiring us. On the other hand, if you have already spoken with the other party’s adjuster, be sure whatever you told the adjuster was 100% accurate, and also remember to tell us of that conversation so that we may try to obtain copies of any written or recorded statements given to the adjuster.
