The Importance of Communication in Personal Injury Cases

When you hire your own private personal injury lawyer to help you when you have been injured through no fault of your own, you are paying for the communication skills of that attorney. You are paying for him to represent you so that you don’t have to communicate with people trying to take advantage of you. The ability of your injury lawyer to communicate is vitally important to your final settlement. Learn more here.

The Other Insurance Company

Communicating with the at-fault party’s insurance company is a very important ability. The at-fault insurance company will try to talk to you immediately after the accident to get you to accept the blame.  They know you are in shock right after the incident, and you might not be thinking straight, and you might say the wrong thing.

Blame

Your injury lawyer knows this scam.  Your attorney will communicate with the at-fault insurance company and make it known that you will not be talking to them about the case at all. The at-fault company will also try to tell you that you are not entitled to any compensation and didn’t follow the rules about seeing a particular doctor.

An experienced personal injury lawyer knows these statements are all false.
