The Biggest Mistake to Avoid in a Personal Injury Case


The biggest mistake in a personal injury case that must be avoided at all costs is giving a recorded statement to the liable party’s insurance company. Doing so can completely ruin your chances at recovering compensation. Below, we’ll discuss the mistakes that you need to avoid when filing an injury claim in Florida.

Giving a Recorded Statement to an Insurance Company

In this video, Jacksonville personal injury attorney Eric Ragatz discusses why you should never give a recorded statement to an insurance company.

In almost every car accident case that we get our client will ask us, “I’ve gotten a call from an insurance adjuster; should I call them back and talk to them?” The answer is no. Speak to Edwards & Ragatz first and we’ll walk you through the statements. You are not required to cooperate with the other person’s insurance company, and we almost always advise our clients not to give those statements. You are required, under certain circumstances, to cooperate with your own insurance company, but you have the right to have time to contact us first so that we can speak with you about what the types of questions will be, and we’ll be at your side when you give that mandatory statement.
