After a bus crash in Kansas, is it a good idea to talk to insurance companies?
We got a call the other day from somebody who was injured in a bus accident case here in Kansas. They were getting contacted by the bus company and their insurance carrier and wanted to know if it was a good idea for them to go ahead and talk to the company or insurance carrier. No, it is not a good idea to do that.
The insurance carriers in general do a great job through all their advertising and commercials in making us think that they’re our friends, that they care about us and that they’re going to take care of us in this type of situation, but, in fact, they’re sole goal in wanting to talk to you is to gather evidence that will help them deny or delay your case. They’re very skilled at doing this. They can ask questions in a certain way or a certain order to gather the evidence they need to delay or deny your claim. Even though to you it may feel like you’re just telling the truth – what do you have to lose? – it really is a detriment to your case to talk to the bus company or the insurance carrier without an attorney representing you, so make sure you get an attorney involved and, on your side, before you speak to anyone.
If you have any questions about this or any other aspect of your bus accident case, give us a call and we would be happy to talk to you about it.
