What should I say/not say to the insurance company after a motorcycle accident?
Ideally, you should refer any communications from the insurance company to your motorcycle accident attorney. The attorney can speak to the insurance company on your behalf and make sure your rights and interests are protected.
If you must speak to insurance company representatives, you should keep in mind that the insurance company may somehow use your statement to reduce the compensation they have to pay. They may also use your statement to deny your claim outright.
Communicate about the facts of the accident as you remember them. Do not assign blame or offer your opinion as to how the accident occurred and who was at fault. Let your attorney, the insurance companies or the courts decide that.
Avoid making any statements that could be construed as an apology. The insurance company may point to those statements as an admission of fault for the accident.
