Giving a recorded statement after a truck accident could have a negative effect on your ability to recover compensation. Learn why in this video.
Should I speak to an insurance company after a truck accident?
I spoke to a nice lady on the telephone recently whose husband was involved in a bad truck accident. The insurance company from the truck accident had come to the family’s home and wanted to take a recorded statement. She asked me if they should give a recorded statement. If you’re reading this, you may have the same question. I’ll tell you what I told that lady. Do not give a recorded statement to an insurance company for a trucking company until you’ve consulted with a trial attorney whose core practice is trucking and automobile accident cases. These trucking companies have accident reconstruction teams that get to the scene immediately after a wreck and try to take statements from all the witnesses, and they try to shade the statements in favor of the trucking company.
These insurance companies’ main goal in these cases is to pay the least amount of money possible, and they try to get clients to make statements that will hurt their case down the line. I invited the lady to come in and meet with me, and I am now representing them. If you have any questions about your trucking case, please feel free to give us a call. We’d be happy to help.
