“If you're not sleeping at night
then I'm not doing my job.”

Should I make a statement to my insurance company? | Houston Criminal Defense Attorney

One of the most common mistakes people make after being in an auto accident is making statements to individuals about what has occurred. Insurance records can obtained by law enforcement and can be used in a criminal prosecution.

Because law enforcement will be pursuing criminal charges, you need an experienced Houston criminal defense attorney to protect you.

Attorney Brent Mayr can take steps to prevent charges from ever being filed in the first place by stopping evidence from reaching insurance companies or law enforcement. Call him today for a consultation at (713) 808-9613.

Brent Mayr: One of the most common mistakes that an individual makes when they’re involved in a motor vehicle accident is making statements by talking to individuals about what has occurred. An individual thinks, “Oh, I’m perfectly safe telling my insurance company this is what happened.” But I know, having been a former prosecutor, that those insurance records can be obtained by law enforcement, and the statements that are made to an insurance company can be used in a criminal prosecution. Because law enforcement is going to be investigating and pursuing criminal charges as well, you need to have a criminal attorney to protect you. Because a lot of times, me getting involved, I can keep charges from ever being filed in the first place, because I can take steps to keep that evidence from being turned over to insurance companies and subsequently being turned over to law enforcement.
