It’s best not to talk to anyone else about your accident, especially not to any insurance company, until you obtain legal counsel from an experienced injury attorney. Let your attorney handle the case from the beginning to avoid giving out statements that could potentially downgrade your claim. The attorneys at Philip DeBerard Injury Attorney are ready to fight for you.
