Why You Shouldn't Give a Recorded Statement Following a New Hampshire Car Accident
A New Hampshire car accident can happen at anytime leaving you or a loved one seriously injured. You will be left to answer and consider tough questions, as well as to determine the extent of your injuries.
One of the first things that might happen following an accident is that you might be contacted by the other driver’s insurance company. The request for your recorded statement may appear simple and harmless. In truth, your recorded statement can be devastating to your case. Remember, the insurance adjuster doesn’t represent your best interest. They don’t work for you.
Keep in mind that the full extent of your injuries may not be immediately known. You may downplay your injuries on a recorded statement only to discover the pain increases as the days follow. You may be caught on tape telling an adjuster that you were NOT injured only to find out later that your injuries are more serious than you originally thought.
Obviously, this could seriously jeopardize your case. That is why you should contact an experienced car accident attorney before talking to a representative of the other driver’s insurance company.
