What to Do When an Insurance Agent Calls After a New York Slip and Fall

If you've been hurt in a New York or New Jersey accident on someone else's property, your phone is likely to ring within a few days of your injury. When you answer the phone, the insurance agent placing the call to you is likely to be pleasant. The agent is likely to be interested in your accident, your injuries, and your recovery; he may even be sympathetic to your pain, financial loss, and inconvenience.

But make no mistake. The insurance agent is not on your side; it is not the insurance agent's job to look out for your best interests. Instead, it is the insurance agent's job to save money for the insurance company, which employs him by paying out the least amount of money possible to you. It is the job of a New York accident lawyer to protect your rights, to be on your side, and to look out for your best interests.

While you should not interfere with the insurance company's investigation and resolution of your claim, the law does not require you to speak directly with the insurance agent. If you have retained aNew York injury lawyer to represent you after your slip and fall or other accident, you can refer the insurance agent to your attorney and your attorney will handle all communication with the insurance company.

In the end, this can prove to be very important for your legal and financial recovery. For more information about how a New York or New Jersey accident attorney can help you, please call 1-800-362-9329 for more information.
