What happens when your criminal case involves an auto accident? One of the common questions that we get at Lamano Law Office is whether or not the person should give a statement to their insurance company, to the other party’s insurance company, to the victim or any third party witnesses.
It is really important that you understand any statement that you give can be used against you in court, especially if it’s with an insurance company who is recording your statement. It is probably in your best interest to put together what’s known as a defense team.
A defense team could also include your attorney, an accident reconstruction specialist, your own defense investigator, to take a look at the scene of the crime. There’s a lot of things that you can do to protect yourself after a criminal case that involves an auto accident.
The best thing you can do is call an attorney and get a consultation so you know what you need to do to protect yourself. Thanks for listening.
