Boat Accident Recorded Statement
In this video, our experienced injury lawyer discusses why you should never give a boat accident recorded statement to an insurance company.
Should I speak with an insurance company after a boat accident?
Recently I was contacted by someone who was a victim in a boating accident and he asked me, “What are the two most common mistakes that people make when interacting with the insurance companies on the other side?” The first most common mistake, and it happens time and time again, is people give a recorded statement. They think by cooperating with the insurance company, the insurance company will in turn act in good faith. An insurance company won’t act in good faith. What they’re doing is they’re trying to find a way to limit their exposure and find a way to trick you into giving an answer that will hurt you in the future.
The next mistake that people make is they take the first offer. The first offer is almost always a lowball offer. It’s an effort by the adjuster to see if he or she can get the case done quickly and cheaply. If you’ve been a victim in a boating accident in Texas and have any questions about your case, I’d be happy to discuss it with you.
