In this video, Georgia personal injury attorney Theodore Spaulding explains the one thing you should never do after a motorcycle accident.
In this video, I’m gonna tell you the one thing you should never do after a motorcycle accident. Hi, I’m Ted Spaulding. I’m an Atlanta personal injury trial attorney and the founder here at Spaulding Injury Law. So, what’s the one thing you should never do after a motorcycle accident? In my opinion, it’s trusting the insurance company to have your best interest at heart, even if it’s your own insurance company. Now, they may handle the property damage claim very well for you. They normally do because they don’t have any other choice. But when it comes to the personal injury side, your injuries, your lost wages, your medical bills, your pain and suffering, they are not going to do you any favors. So, don’t assume they are, and therefore give them more information than they deserve during your claim. They’re only out to use it against you. Things like a recorded statement. Sounds innocent. I have nothing to hide, why not give a recorded statement? Well, because they’re gonna try to use it against you later. All right, the attorney that’s defending the case, hired by the insurance company, is gonna listen to that tape. And if that tape is done a day or two after the wreck, and you’re there saying, “Hey, I’m really not that bad off,” because you didn’t really know at that point, seems innocent. They’re gonna use it a year later against you. Hey, two days after the wreck, you’re saying you’re perfectly fine. And they’re gonna twist things that you say. So, don’t give them that ammunition. Don’t trust them that they have your best interests at heart.
I hope this answers this question for you. Something that you can keep in the back of your mind, God forbid that you’re in a motorcycle accident, and have a personal injury claim.
