Why shouldn't you discuss an accident with the insurance company?

Do you ever wonder why you see so many articles and blogs from attorneys warning consumers not to talk to insurance agents and adjusters after a wreck? If you've been in a car accident and the other driver was at fault, that's what their insurance is there for, right?

Less traffic equals fewer accidents -- but doesn't eliminate them

The catastrophic effects of a traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, are commonly seen after serious motor vehicle accidents, especially when a much larger vehicle hits a smaller one -- like a truck hitting a car or a car hitting a motorcycle.

The organization's data shows that as many as 12.6 million individuals operated their vehicle while intoxicated from drugs in 2018. Those same statistics show that nearly eight million more motorists drove while drunk that same year. In case you're wondering if one type of driving is more serious than another, they're both pretty dangerous.
