Injured drivers and their passengers have legal rights after an Opa-Locka car accident. One of them is the right to financial compensation if they can prove that someone else was responsible for the injuries. This only comes at the end of a long process that may be difficult. Standing between you and potential financial compensation is an insurance company that has every incentive in the world not to pay your claim.
It is important to meet with an attorney very soon after your accident. If you cannot do it yourself, your family should begin the conversation. The legal process from your accident may even start moving without you because the insurance company for the other driver may spot a chance to pressure you or even get in a position to deny your claim.
The most dangerous thing that they may do is try to talk to you without your lawyer. You do not even have to talk to them with your lawyer. However, if you do not have an attorney, you may not know that. They have all sorts of tricks and deceptions that they may use to try to get you to say something that could harm your own case. All it takes is one statement on the record that could be taken out of context, and the insurance company could dig in its heels on a settlement and deny the claim.
