912-208-2992, www.TyWilsonLaw.com Savannah personal injury attorney Ty Wilson discusses if you have to keep the at-fault insurance company up to date of your claim. This is for information purposes it is ALWAYS recommended that you speak with a Georgia car wreck attorney for specific answers to your specific claim.
Hello. My name is Ty Wilson. I'm a Georgia personal injury attorney practicing law in the State of Georgia. And our video topic for today is:
Am I required to keep the at-fault insurance adjuster up-to-date on my injuries?
And the answer is “no.” In fact, the reason the insurance company is so aggressive with contacting you and reaching out to you and sending letters to you is they want information from you and they want to help place a value (and hopefully, the most conservative value on your claim after you’ve been injured). And so, when they speak with you about your injuries they want to know: “Is it serious?” “Is it not serious?” “Is it becoming surgical?” And that helps them value their claim.
It is our recommendation that you do not give them any information until you have completed treatment; as you’re not a doctor, you’re not a medical professional. And if you are, you still want to hold back to make sure you know what the full extent of your injuries are. Once you know the full extent of your injuries, I always recommend that you speak with a Georgia personal injury attorney and discuss the possibilities of resolving a claim at that point—but not until then. So I would recommend that you do not contact the at-fault insurance carrier to update them about your injuries.
We hope that you’ve found this information helpful. We hope that you’ll come check out our other videos. And if have any specific questions about your Georgia car wreck claim, please feel free to give us a call. Thank you.
