Should I speak to the insurance company after a truck accident?
People often ask whether they should be talking to the insurance company following a commercial trucking tractor trailer semi collision. There are two answers. With regards to their own insurance company, yes, you talk to that insurance company. They are your insurance company. You have a duty and responsibility under your contract with them to cooperate. What that means is you contact them immediately after the collision. You let them know you were hurt. They many times will want a statement from you, either written or over the phone. They will send you either online or via the US mail a packet of information that you will have to complete. You will want to do that. If you do not cooperate with your own insurance company, they can void your coverage. You do not want that in a time of need such as this.
With regards to any other insurance company, particularly the insurance company representing the trucking company, the driver, etc., do not talk to them. They are experts in their field. You are not. This quite likely is your first collision where you’ve been hurt. You do not know what you do not know. We will strongly advice you to not talk to the insurance companies. In fact, if you’ve come to see us, that is one of the things we will instruct you. Do not talk to them. Instead, give them our contact information and have them call us. They know the rules. It is illegal for them to talk to you once you have told them that you’re represented by a lawyer. They know how it works. The information will go through our office and then you can concentrate on getting better. If you’ve been hurt in a commercial trucking collision, either in Nassau County, Duval County, any of the cities in there, call us. We’ll sit down and talk about it and figure out how best we can help you.
