Words to NEVER say to a Liability Carrier

Portner & Shure Law Firm Serving Maryland, Virginia & Washington D.C.


Our first advice is to never talk to a liability carrier, but if you do, here are some things to never say:

1.      Sorry—implies fault

2.      I’m fine—many injuries take time to show up. Oftentimes you feel far worse the next day
3.      Sure, record me—carriers love to obtain recorded statements.  A person making a claim lying or admitting to something will weaken their claim

4.      Whiplash—insurance industry experts say that this throws up red flags that you are exaggerating the severity of the accident  

If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, talk to an attorney first. Everything you say to the insurance carrier can be used against you in your case and it can significantly limit any possible recovery. Call Portner & Shure today for a free consultation: (301) 854-9000,(410) 995-1515.
