Boat Accidents and Insurance Companies

Boat Accidents and Insurance Companies

Boat Accidents and Insurance CompaniesBoat accidents and insurance companies go hand in hand. For example, if you have been injured in a boating accident — even if the accident is not your fault — you will most likely be receiving phone calls from an insurance adjuster asking questions about the incident. Will it help your claim to give a recorded statement to this examiner? Never speak to an insurance company about an accident unless first having been advised by your attorney to do so.

Boat Accidents and Insurance Companies | Recorded Statement

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.
