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.
