If you have been involved and injured in a car accident or motorcycle crash there are many things you need to avoid doing so that you don’t harm your accident claim. Unfortunately, many people don’t know about these things and make critical mistakes that can jeopardize their claims.

In order to avoid harming your injury claim, you should know that whatever you say to the insurance company can be used against you. For example, if you admit that you were going just five miles per hour over the speed limit, the insurance company will use this information to limit their liability and your damages. Before speaking with an insurance adjuster, it is best to contact a lawyer to learn what you should and shouldn’t say. Additionally, you should avoid posting comments about the accident or your injuries on Facebook or any other social media site. Insurers will look at all your activity on social media to see if they can use anything against you.

By avoiding social media and not giving a recorded statement, coupled with working with an experienced attorney, you will be able to protect your accident claim instead of harming it. To learn more, contact Hupy and Abraham for a free consultation in Iowa at 800.800.5678 or online at
