https://www.turleylawfirm.com/ After a work accident, boating accident, offshore accident, or other maritime accident, it is important that you know what not to do from the moment of your accident. Watch this short video to learn what mistakes you shouldn’t make in order to avoid harming your claim.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is talking with the insurance adjuster. Insurance adjusters are not your friends, even if they act nice. They are trained at getting information from you that can be used against you to defeat your case. They may even ask you to give them a written and recorded statement. Just remember that they will ask questions in a slanted manner with the intention of hurting your claim. Another mistake people make is signing authorization forms the insurance company sends them. These forms are intended to harm your case by allowing the insurance company to have access to your previous medical and employment records. They are looking for anything they can to deny your claim. Additionally, the words you use in everyday conversation may be twisted and used against you. For example, instead of saying ‘I can’t lift heavy things’, you should say ‘I avoid lifting heavy things because my back hurts.’
Knowing what to say and not to say to the insurance company can help you avoid harming your case. This way, you should get the most compensation that you are entitled to.
