Let’s get one thing straight: Insurance companies are in business for themselves.
For that reason, they tend to be a bit stingy when it comes to handing out money for those injured in car, truck or motorcycle accidents.
Motorcyclists who are injured are especially in danger of being taken advantage of. Why? Two reasons:
- Bikers statistically have more serious – and therefore more expensive – injuries.
- Bikers have a bad rap for being dangerous drivers, making the insurance representative less likely to be sympathetic.
Insurance companies are looking for any way to show that you, and not their client, were responsible for the accident. That way they can deny your claim or offer you a smaller settlement.
Perhaps the easiest way for them to get their “proof” is through your recorded statement. If they can get a recorded statement that shows you flustered or doubting yourself, that will weaken your case for a larger settlement.
But did you know that you are not required to give a statement to the other party’s insurance company? That’s something insurance companies won’t tell you because they want to get you on record, make you uncomfortable and push you into taking more blame for the accident than you should.
If you feel bullied by the insurance companies, give experienced Atlanta accident attorney Ty Wilson a call. He can guide you through the often confusing process of filing a claim, giving your recorded statement and getting the most out of the insurance companies.
