As an Oklahoma City car accident attorney a common battle I face on a daily basis is the adjuster telling me I have your client recorded stating “I’m not injured.”

In almost every circumstance, the adjuster has two goals when he or she makes contact with you immediately following an automobile accident. First, they always want you to say that your “at fault.” Secondly, if there is no way around liability, they want you to say “I’m not injured.” Why? Its quite simple they want to use this statement in a potential settlement and/or litigation to show that you are lying about your injuries regardless of the truth.

You have to realize that car wreck injuries do not immediately show up. Often, pain does not show up until a few days after the car accident. For example, brain trauma may not immediately manifest itself and sometimes shows up in the following days with symptoms of dizziness, vomiting and light sensitivity. Other “soft tissue” injuries such as whiplash and back strains also may not show immediately do the adrenaline rush many people experience after a car wreck.

Accordingly, its important to never admit that you are not injured and always contact an attorney to maneuver you around the potholes that an experienced insurance adjuster will try to get you to fall in.

    This is interesting advice and so very important to people that really are hurt. We see the "I'm getting better" answer or posed question, that really is meant to be used in the same way. The adjuster has a goal in with the statement, none of which are in line with the person seeing justice. They ask questions with a reason , that the average person, who wants to get their property damage paid for, is worried about getting back to work and has had their life turned upside down would even consider are important.
