Top three reasons not to talk to the other side’s insurance company after an accident


After an accident, it is prudent to get in contact with your insurance company soon after. The liability stipulations in your insurance contract usually mandate this, and it is important to relay to them the details of what happened.

However, it is inevitable after you exchange contact information with anyone else involved in the accident that you will be contacted by some sort of representative for the other parties involved.

You’ve likely lost time at work, had to pay additional medical expenses that you would not have had to pay if you had not been in an accident and maybe even had to pay for a new vehicle or substantial repairs. If someone else caused this accident, you should not be the one that has to foot the bill for all of this. That is why we have personal injury lawsuits in order to make you whole following an auto accident.

The question is, what does it really take to make you whole? There’s a lot to consider and it can be argued that no amount of monetary damages can ever make you “completely whole.
