If you are not careful, you could say things that could adversely affect your ability to file a claim and collect compensation. It is important to know ahead of time what 5 phrases to avoid as well as other mistakes to avoid after a car accident in Colorado Springs.
After an accident, the things you say are important. As such, you should always avoid saying those 5 phrases. When in doubt, say very little before talking to an experienced lawyer. Your lawyer will be able to direct you and protect you during this difficult time. Remember: insurance companies are very reluctant to pay injured accident victims. As such, they will look for any holes in your case to reduce your compensation. Don’t let something you say give them the ammunition they need to reduce your claim. An experienced attorney knows how to fight the large insurance companies and WIN. Your car accident attorney will be able to negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf while you are focusing your energy on your recovery.
