How to Talk to the Insurance Company After an Auto Accident

by Staff Blogger | June 26th, 2019

Because it’s required by law to carry valid auto insurance in Tennessee, it’s a foregone conclusion that you’ll likely be in contact with one or even two insurance companies after an accident—your own and the other driver’s. Whether speaking to an intake agent or an adjuster, it’s important to remember that both insurance companies are looking to protect their own profits, not to pay you the compensation you deserve.

Even if you weren’t at fault for the auto accident, you’re still required to report it to your own insurance provider—often within a matter of days of the crash occurring. When you report the crash, stick to the facts of what happened and keep the conversation brief. Never admit fault for the crash, as doing so could jeopardize your chances of getting compensation, even if you have a policy that protect you after an accident.

When it comes to speaking with the other driver’s insurance company, letting an experienced Nashville auto accident lawyer handle the interaction can help you maximize your chances of compensation. That’s because adjusters are trained to reduce or deny claims, and they know every trick in the book when it comes to getting victims to accept lowball settlements or even admit fault for crashes that they didn’t cause.
