FAQ: Should I Talk to the Other Insurance Company About My Topeka Vehicle Accident?

car accident

Unfortunately, there are thousands of vehicle accidents in and around the Topeka, Kansas, area each year. Many 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.

If you have been seriously injured in an auto accident, it is likely that you will be contacted by the other party’s insurance company quickly. 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.

“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 & Tanksley Personal Injury Firm in Topeka.

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.”
