It’s important to remember to never talk to an insurance company (or anyone for that matter) concerning your accident before you speak with a lawyer. Sadly, the insurance company does not want you to find out that you have a legal right toward the maximum compensation available for your injuries. They may attempt to get you to agree to a meager compensation amount that barely covers your medical costs. Insurance companies do not have your well-being in mind.
