Don’t Speak to the Insurance Company

A few years ago my Father-in-law was seriously injured in an auto
collision. He was immediately taken to the hospital for surgery. The
next day, while he was recovering from surgery in his hospital bed and
loaded with pain medication, he got a phone call from the insurance
company wanting a statement. This is all too common, and many people
don’t realize that they can refuse to give a statement until they feel
better – or refuse to give a statement at all.

If you’ve been
injured in an accident and the insurance company is trying to get you
to make a statement, or if they are trying to get you to sign anything,
call a lawyer – even if you think its a simple case. You have rights
that the insurance company will not tell you about.

If you have
any questions regarding your legal rights after a motor vehicle
collision, or about any aspect of a personal injury claim, please check
out my website or send me an
email.

    Many of my clients have personal injury protection (PIP) coverage through their auto insurance. This coverage acts like health insurance without the same restrictions (no co-pays or deductibles, no referrals required, no networks to worry about). If you are injured in an auto accident and you have PIP coverage, you can see any health care ... Read more

    Washington law requires all drivers to carry liability insurance. This coverage will protect you from liability by compensating the victims of an accident you cause. But what if the victim is you? What if you are injured and you didn’t cause the accident? What if another driver caused the accident? And what if that driver ... Read more
