If you’ve been seriously injured in a slip and fall in the state of Utah, oftentimes, early in the process, the insurance carrier will want to come in and talk with you and get a written or recorded statement. People often think that providing this information and answering their questions is going to help their claim move along quicker and resolve for fair value. What we have found is just the opposite. When people open up to the attorneys of the company itself, the way that their questions are crafted, the answers are later used against the injured individual.
We recommend that you do not talk with the company, insurance carrier or attorneys of the company, but, instead, come in and seek out your own attorney who can help protect you from some of the questions that they’re going to ask you early on.
