Bus Accident Insurance InvestigationHurt in an accident and have questions about a bus accident insurance investigation? Learn in this video why talking to the insurance company is a bad idea.
After a bus crash in Tampa Bay, is it a good idea to talk to insurance companies?
One of the most frequent questions we get asked by people involved in bus accident cases are whether the injured individual should speak to the insurance company or the lawyer for the insurance company of the bus. That is never a good idea, not without legal advice. If you think you want to negotiate your claim on your own, at some point, you’re going to have to speak to the insurance company for the bus who causes the accident or for the lawyer who represents the insurance company for the bus who caused the accident. It’s not advisable. In those cases, you won’t have access to information involving appropriate reporting if the bus is owned by a governmental entity. Even if it’s a private entity, the insurance companies don’t make money by paying out claims. Insurance companies make money by minimizing the recovery on claims, by minimizing your claim. If you don’t make the appropriate deadlines for reporting governmental agencies, your claim can be barred. You need to know what your rights are even if you think you might want to handle your claim on your own. It’s never a good idea to speak directly to the insurance company or the lawyer for the insurance company in a bus accident case.
