What should I say to the other party involved in the accident or their insurance adjuster?

If you are involved in a Washington motorcycle accident, it is a good idea to not say anything too specific about the accident.  Many times, in the moments following an accident, people say things that may not necessarily be true.  A potentially incorrect admission of guilt can severely impact your accident claim. 

The at fault person's insurance adjuster will likely want to talk to you as soon as possible.  The insurance adjuster will also want to record their telephone conversation with you.  This is never a good idea and you should always refuse to engage in a phone conversation with the at fault person's insurance adjuster.  You can politely tell the insurance adjuster that you will be happy to call them back just as soon as you speak with your attorney.  The main reason the at fault insurance company wants to talk to you immediately and record the conversation is to find evidence to use against you.

Insurance companies do all they can to minimize your claim from the very start.  That's why it's important to get educated by reading the 7 Biggest Mistakes That Can Wreck Your Washington Motorcycle Accident Case or schedule a free consultation with Scott so you know how to move forward.
