Working With the Insurance Company
If you were involved in an accident with an underinsured motorist, contact your insurance company promptly. Some insurance companies will want your permission to make a recorded statement concerning the accident. Before you give the insurance company permission to record a statement from you, it is important to talk with an attorney who will help you understand your rights.
Do not sign any documents presented to you by the insurance company or allow them to take a recorded statement — even for your own insurance company. Insurance companies place their financial interests first, not yours. At Naftulin and Shick, we are working to protect your interests — that is not something most insurance companies can claim.
If you or a member of your family has been involved in a serious accident with an underinsured motorist, there are some steps you should take to protect your ability to maximize insurance coverage compensation for any injuries sustained. These steps include:
- Get as much witness information as possible
- Write down a description of the events immediately preceding and following the accident
- Make sure you visit a doctor and follow the doctor’s advice
- Obtain all necessary and recommended medical treatments
- Report all injuries, even if they are minor
