FAQ: Should I Talk to the Other Insurance Company About My Wichita car Accident?
The largest city in Kansas, there are many vehicle accidents that happen each year in and around the Wichita area. Unfortunately, some of these accidents result in serious harm to the persons involved, and sadly, the insurance companies are not always looking out for the best interests of the injured.
“We typically advise you not to talk to the other party’s insurance company until you talk to an attorney first,” said personal injury attorney Mike Wyatt of the Mann, Wyatt & Rice Personal Injury Firm in Wichita.
There are a variety of reasons it would be best to speak with an attorney before speaking with the other party’s insurance company. Ultimately, the other insurance company is trying to obtain information to help their case rather than yours, and they are trained to ask questions that might imply fault on your part.
According to Wyatt, “The insurance adjustors often ask very nicely if they can take a statement. They will try to develop a good rapport early on, but this is what they’re trained to do. They’re trying to obtain information that will hurt your case.”
