After an Accident, Should I Contact An Attorney or My Insurance First?

Here at The Ruth Law Team, we recommend contacting an experienced car accident attorney in Tampa before speaking to any insurance companies – even your own. Remember that insurance companies will be looking for ways to minimize payouts to any and all victims after an accident.

Here is an example. When you speak to an insurance representative, they will likely ask, “How are you doing today?” or something similar, like most people do in normal conversation. If you answer, “I’m good,” or “I’m doing well, thank you,” the insurance company may misconstrue this and argue that you are doing well and are not injured from the accident.

That is just one trick the insurance companies use to minimize their payout to victims. These are areas that our Tampa personal injury attorneys at The Ruth Law Team will prepare you for so you can properly speak to the insurance company and not risk your claim.
