What Not To Do After A Car Accident

Watch this video by dedicated Buffalo injury attorney Timothy Hiller, Esq. as he explains what you should not do after a car accident. 

My friends and my family will sometimes ask me, what’s the biggest no-no after an auto accident? What should I avoid? And the number one biggest thing that you should avoid is signing anything. Do not sign any document before consulting an attorney.

But on top of that, you may start getting calls from insurance adjusters. You should assume that those calls are being recorded. And really, you should avoid any substantive conversations with the insurance adjusters. The saying in the law goes, anything you say can and will be used against you. They’re not calling because they’re your friends. They’re not calling because they’re genuinely concerned about you, although they may seem genuinely concerned about you. They’re calling for one reason, and that’s to get rid of your claim as cheaply as possible for their employer.

So don’t go it alone. Don’t sign documents. Don’t talk to the insurance company without a representative, someone who knows how to fight back and someone who has the talent to do so. And here at Hiller Comerford Injury & Disability Law, we have that.
