Let Your Insurance Company Know About the Accident, But Don't Give a Statement or Sign Anything
You should let your insurance company know about the accident as soon as you're able to but consult an attorney before providing details beyond other than the date, time, and location of the accident. Wait until you have consulted an attorney so that decisions can best be made as to how your case should proceed.
Don’t Accept Payment Without Legal Assistance
If your insurance company or any other insurer sends you a check, do not cash or deposit it without first talking to a lawyer.
Keep Medical Records, But Don’t Share Them With Anyone
Consult an attorney before signing any authorization or other document that would allow an insurer to obtain your medical records or even speak with your doctor without your further knowledge or consent.
