Should I Get an Attorney Before a Boating Accident Interview?Lake Powell Boating Accident

                Yes.  You should consult with an attorney before giving an adjuster interview for your boating accident.  You should understand your legal rights prior to giving an adjuster interview with any insurance company.  If you bear some fault for the boat collision an adjuster interview can make things worse.  Always consult an injury attorney before giving a recorded statement.

What Topics Can Be Addressed in a Boating Collision Adjuster Interview?

                All topics are on the table when giving an adjuster interview, unless your boating injury lawyer restricts them. Common topics covered in adjuster interview are:

  • Were you driving the day of the boat collision or using any prescription of illegal drugs?
  • What are your driving credentials? How long have you owned the boat? Do you boat on this lake a lot?  Or is this your first time?
  • Did you have any pre-existing injuries before you were injured in the boat accident?
  • Where those pre-existing injuries dormant or actively symptomatic? Where you actively being treated for any pre-existing injuries prior to the boat accident?
  • What happen that caused the boat accident?
  • Did you talk to the other boat driver after the accident?
  • Did you have any warning before the boat accident occurred?
  • Did the police come to the scene of boating accident?
  • What did you do immediately after the boat accident?
  • And the list goes on and on.

Can a Boating Accident Adjuster Interview Be Used Against Me?

                Yes.  The purpose of an adjuster boating interview is to ascertain early who was at-fault and what your injuries are.  Everything in the interview is recorded and will be used against you in the future.  All adjuster interviews are commonly requested by the insurance defense attorneys and reviewed against your deposition testimony and in preparation to cross-examine you at trial.

The problem with giving a recorded statement is that you don’t know all the facts and you can give statements that turn out to later be not factual and used against you.

Call an attorney before the insurance companies start calling you about your boating or recreational accident.
