Insurance adjusters tactics can hurt your ability to file a successful car accident claim in West Virginia, and some of the most important moments of the process may occur in the moments following your crash.
In some cases, an adjuster from the other party’s insurance company will arrive on the accident scene, and what you do and say could make a difference.
Take pictures if you have a camera, get photos of:
- vehicle damage;
- skid marks;
- weather conditions; and
- visible injuries.
They’ll be compelling documentation down the road. Also, be sure to get the names and contact information of everyone at the scene.
From the moment of the crash, insurance adjusters with the at-fault party will use tactics to diminish your right to compensation. Do not agree to a recorded statement and by all means, do not downplay your injuries. Remember, it's best to speak with an attorney before speaking with an insurance adjuster.
