Construction Accident Recorded Statement
In this video, our experienced attorney discusses why you should never give a construction accident recorded statement to an insurance company.
Should I speak with an insurance company after a construction accident?
The other day I got a phone call from someone who was injured in a construction accident and wanted to know what some of the common mistakes are that people make when they’re injured on a job site and are dealing with insurance companies. The two most common mistakes are, first, giving a recorded statement and, second, giving that recorded statement before hiring an attorney. Insurance companies are there to try to limit their exposure. Beyond limiting their exposure, they’re also there to trick you. If they were there to fairly compensate you and your claims, I’d be out of business. Whether it is for a workers compensation claim or to an OSHA representative that’s investigating what occurred, never give a statement without first hiring an attorney.
The last mistake is taking the insurance company’s first offer. They’re just trying to get it done as quickly as possible, and they start with a low offer to try to get it resolved for as little as possible. If you’ve been injured on a worksite and you have questions about your claim, please don’t hesitate to contact our office and we’ll be happy to answer any questions that you have.
