Speaking to an Insurance Company After a Truck Accident
After being involved in a collision with a commercial vehicle, there will most likely be several different parties attempting to contact you and hear your account of what happened. You may be wondering if speaking to an insurance company after a truck accident is in your best interests. We recommend that the only people you should be talking to are the responding police officers at the scene and your attorney. Anyone else — the insurance company, the trucking company, the other driver, etc. — will be trying to use whatever information you give them to try and cast you in a bad light.
Speaking to an Insurance Company After a Truck Accident | Recorded Statements
If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident with a truck, chances are the insurance company for the trucker has contacted you and asked for a recorded statement. Under no circumstances should you give a statement to an insurance company.
The insurance companies have specially trained adjusters who are trained to elicit information from you that is beneficial to the insured or the insurance company, but not necessarily to you. Their goal is to minimize the amount of monies paid out on the claim.
