The insurance adjuster is calling me about my South Carolina accident- should I speak with the adjuster?
After you have been involved in a South Carolina car accident, the adjuster for the other driver’s insurance company will most likely try calling you. They will ask for a recorded statement and if you have been injured, they will want to talk in depth about your injuries. While it is usually alright if you speak with an adjuster about your vehicle and property damage, you should not discuss your injuries with an adjuster until you have spoken with an attorney.
It is important to remember that the insurance company is NOT your friend. Auto accident attorneys handle personal injury cases daily, and are used to the tactics used by insurance adjusters to devalue your wreck case. It is always best to speak with an attorney before you talk to an adjuster about your injuries. Shelly Leeke Law Firm provides free complimentary case evaluations.
