Miami car accident attorney Gregg Goldfarb presents a 6 part series on “What Not to do After a Car Accident.” This is part 6. Today I’m going to present the next topic on my discussion of what not to do if you’re involved in an automobile accident, and that is to give a statement to an insurance adjuster without having spoken to an attorney beforehand. After an accident, there are insurance companies that will be involved. Either your insurance company or the other driver’s insurance companies might contact you to give a statement. Your insurance company might have the right to actually have you come to their office and give what is called an examination under oath, which is essentially a statement under oath. You might be required under your insurance policy to give that statement, but the other insurance companies, the other driver’s insurance company, you do not have an obligation to give a statement to that insurance company. Instead, what you should do before giving a statement either to your insurance company or the other driver’s insurance company is to contact an attorney and explain that you’re involved in an accident and that the insurance companies are requesting a statement.
