Insurance adjusters go to great lengths to deny or minimize claims. And while we highly recommend that you avoid speaking to them on your own, there are situations where it may happen. Before it does happen, though, you should know the things to avoid saying so you’re not making an already vulnerable situation more difficult to endure.
We want to protect you during your time of need. Here are some of the things you should avoid saying if you have to speak with insurance adjusters.
1. I’m Sorry
You may feel bad about the accident, but when you apologize, insurance companies use this against you. They may try to say that you were the one at fault for the accident since you apologized for the crash. If they can turn fault against you for the crash, you may be unable to obtain compensation.
2. I Think…
Whenever you do make a statement, ensure it is clear and concise. If you stumble through or have a hard time remembering what happened, insurance adjusters may try to use your statements against you. Provide only the facts of your case.
3. I Didn’t See Them
Remember, anything you say to insurance adjusters can be used against you. If you claim you didn’t see the other vehicle, insurance adjusters may claim you were distracted or not paying attention. If insurance adjusters can use that statement against you, they will, and it can limit how much you recover.
Remember, insurance adjusters are out to protect profits, not people.
