|Should I speak to the insurance company after a boat accident in North Augusta?|
I recently spoke with a man from South Carolina who was injured in a boating accident. At the time, the insurance company for the driver of the boat that hit him was attempting to reach out to him to get a recorded statement. He wanted to know if I thought that was good idea to speak with the insurance company. The answer to that is, no, it is not a good idea. For one thing, you have no responsibility or duty as the injured person to give any kind of statement to the insurance company for the at-fault driver, whether it be in a car wreck or a bus accident or a boating accident. You do not have that responsibility. At the same time, however, you are at some point going to have to present your claim to that insurance company, so you are going to have to contact them.
That is why I think it’s very important, early on in your case, to go ahead and find an attorney who is competent in handling boating accident cases. Find a trial lawyer who has experience in handling boat accident cases, who can guide you through the process and who can tell you what to expect, and an attorney who will vigorously prosecute your case and carry it through litigation. If anyone out there has been the victim in a boating accident case, please give us a call. We’d be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have.
