speaking with the at-fault driver’s insurance company? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

It is highly recommended that you do not speak with the other driver’s insurance company before speaking with a car accident attorney. And regardless of what the insurance adjuster may tell you, you do not ever want to agree to give them a recorded statement.

Dealing with your own insurance company is different, especially if you need to pursue damages through your own policy because the other driver was uninsured or underinsured or it was a hit and run accident. You will want to have a copy of the police report, any photos from the crash, any medical expenses you have incurred, medical records, and an estimate of the repairs needed for your vehicle.
