Customer Question
In an accident drunk...

In an accident drunk driving.. No charges pressed against me, just my insurance calling and don’t know what i should say.

Lawyer's Assistant: What's the exact nature of the charges?

None,,, I damaged a car or some property,, don’t remember as I awoke in the Hospital.. The party involved took my insurance information from my insurance information from my wallet. They filed a claim and now an adjuster from my company is calling.. I just don’t want to compromise my coverage for the other party.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

None at all... No charges have been filed against me.

I am sorry to read about this.

Unfortunately, you have to speak to the adjuster. The insurance company has legal right to get information from you before approving or denying the claim from the other motorist.

I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.

Best wishes,

Do I have to tell him I was drinking.
Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 11 months ago

You have to truthfully answer questions asked. That's all that is expected of you. Otherwise, your insurance company may take action against you for not telling the truth.

Best wishes,

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
