When you hire a lawyer for any matter, their job is not only to fight for your justice but to handle any questions or correspondence from other parties.
Whether it’s from the other party’s lawyer or an insurance company, you should never answer questions during a phone call or a letter. Any documents that you receive should be forwarded to your attorney for review.
Now why is that? Why can’t you handle your own mail? Well, you hired a lawyer for their advice and expertise in this personal injury area and you should take it. Other lawyers and insurance companies are trained to get information from witnesses and skew the view of your case. Any questions you may answer may harm your case. Not because you would lie at any point, but because you need to be prepared at questions they will throw at you and sweetheart deals designed to make you give up early. Always remember that people on the opposite side of your case only have their interests at heart and not yours. Your attorney should be fielding any questions they have so that you don’t have to be bothered or hassled by anyone. Watch the video now to learn more.
