Should I agree to talk to the other driver’s insurance company?

In general, no. When you are in an accident, the other driver’s insurance company may contact you to ask you details about the accident, to request that you sign a statement or release, or to give you a settlement offer. You should not make any statements about the details of the accident, and you should not agree to an offer or sign anything without talking to an attorney first.

Remember that the insurance company will be trying to minimize any payments it makes to you. It is important that you have a knowledgeable representative in your corner. Before we advise you regarding any settlement offer, we will thoroughly review the facts and the law in your case. If you have grounds for a lawsuit, we are prepared to file suit and take whatever steps are necessary to win you the compensation you deserve — including taking your case to trial.
