Your Tallahassee Auto Accident Law Firm Explains Your Legal Options

After an auto accident, many people assume that they are required to give a recorded statement to an insurance company. However, that is not the case. Making a statement could actually hurt your personal injury claim. An experienced Tallahassee auto accident law firm knows that you are under no legal obligation to speak to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. In the following video, attorney Eric Milles explains why you should always seek legal counsel before making any recorded statements after an auto accident.

You never have to give a statement to an insurance company other than potentially your own insurance company. If you are in an accident and another driver is at fault and their insurance company calls you, you definitely do not have to give a statement, and it is recommended that you seek legal counsel. If your own insurance company asks for an examination under oath or another statement, it is also recommended that you seek legal counsel because there are various procedures and requirements for these sort of statements.
