Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

After the accident, while I was still in the hospital, an insurance adjuster and a hospital representative came to my room to get a recorded statement from me. Is that supposed to happen?

This is one of the sneaky tactics that insurance companies use to deny your Kansas City personal injury claim. They send out an adjuster to your hospital room because they know you are most vulnerable at that time. They are counting on that, and hoping that you will say something that can hurt your claim. You may be on heavy medications that make you drowsy or groggy, or even forgetful. This is why they may show up without any warning. Even under the influence of heavy sedation, anything you say that is recorded can be used against you. You must make sure to have an attorney present before making your recorded statement. Also, wait until your head is clear and you don’t have medications hampering your judgment. It is possible under those circumstances you might not remember all the details of the collision and hurt your settlement chances.
