What Should You Know Before Talking to the Insurance Adjustor
First of all, you are under no legal duty to speak with the insurance adjustor, but if you do keep in mind:
1. Anything you say to the insurance adjustor can later be used against you.
2. You are not required to provide a recorded statement and often it is a very bad idea to do so.
3. The insurance adjustor is not your friend, does not have to tell you the truth and their job is to pay you as little money as possible to settle your case. It is rarely a good idea to settle your case early on before you know the full extent of your injuries and how they may impact your life.
Our law firm can help you find answers to questions like:
- Should I talk to the insurance adjustor?
- Who is going to pay for my medical bills?
- What should I do if I can’t work after my accident?
- Should I be researching law firms? (You may not need an attorney in your case.)

Our legal team has been handling these types of injury cases for years and has the answers you need to determine the next step when seeking justice after a negligent driver causes an accident with your bike.
