How to Deal with Insurance Companies after a Car Accident in Las Vegas

If you have been injured in a Las Vegas car accident, there are a number of steps you can take to protect your rights while dealing with an insurance company. It is important to remember that insurance companies are highly profitable and they have it in their best interest to deny or reduce the value of your claim. Anyone about to call an insurance company after a car accident should be well prepared before picking up the phone.

Before calling the insurance company, you should have all of the crash details written down. You should have details such as when, where, and how the accident occurred. You should also have clear and accurate details about what you were doing before the accident and what kind of losses you have suffered. Having notes ready before calling the insurance company will help you keep the facts straight and consistent. If the insurance adjuster suspects that you are lying or contradicting yourself, your claim may be denied.

Before discussing your claim, you should refuse to have the conversation recorded. When answering questions, reference your notes and stay clear and concise. It may not be in your best interest to accept the settlement immediately if you have suffered a serious injury. Instead, you should discuss the offer with a skilled personal injury attorney who will fight for your rights and look out for your best interests. Rushing into a settlement which is inadequate will leave you with no options. Once you sign the agreement, your case will be closed and you will not be able to receive additional compensation regardless of the expenses you may incur.
