In this article, Atlanta | Savannah car crash and personal injury attorney Ty Wilson discusses whether you should speak with the insurance adjuster once you’ve hired an attorney to represent you for your personal injury claim. This is for information purposes it is ALWAYS recommended that you speak with a Georgia car wreck attorney for specific answers to your specific claim.
The question that was asked was this: Once I hire an attorney to represent me for my Savannah car accident/personal injury claim, should I speak with the insurance adjuster?
As far as the at-fault insurance adjuster, your insurance adjuster should be directed to the attorney and the attorney should be dealing with them directly. And so, if the insurance adjuster is contacting you and saying they’re not getting any response back from your attorney, you may want to reach out to your attorney and say, “Hey I’m getting calls from the insurance adjuster. They’re asking that I speak with them since they can’t get a hold of you.” It should happen very rarely but it does happen from time to time. And so, you always want to get to your attorney and speak with them about your claim. Do not give any information to the insurance company. Always let your attorney handle it.
Remember, this is why you’ve hired them. You’ve hired them to protect your interests. They know what not to say and what to say to the insurance company in order to get the matter resolved. Insurance companies are always going to look out for their own interests which means they do not have your interests in mind. This is why you want to let you lawyer work on your behalf.
