Sure, you may be recovering from your injuries and building up for your fight with the insurance company, but what are they preparing to do for their fight with you? Here are three things that the insurance company might be doing to track YOU down:
- Capturing you on film. Don’t put it past the insurance adjuster to follow you around with a video camera or snap some photos of you at the gym or the supermarket as you recover from your injuries. If they catch you making some moves that seem uncharacteristic of an injured person, they could lower your Missouri injury claim.
- Getting you to speak on the record. One of the most common tactics an insurance adjuster will use is to get a recorded statement from you and then use your words against you. Basically, it is best to leave the talking to your Missouri injury lawyer, if you’ve hired one. If not, you probably want to request a free copy of my Missouri accident guide, “I Survived: The Crash Victim’s Guide to Dealing with the Aftermath,” to learn the other mistakes to avoid.
- Watching your tweets. You may think I’m joking, but the truth of the matter is that the insurance company is just as hip as you are—and they could be tracking you down on facebook or twitter to get pictures, statements, or other information. The fight with the insurance company gets uglier every day.
