What info can I give an insurance company after an accident?

If you become seriously injured in a tractor trailer truck accident,or any kind of auto accident, the at-fault party's insurance company will contact you about your claim.

Before speaking with them, know that the trucking company and their insurance adjusters are experienced and will want to limit damages early on if possible.

The adjusters represent the truck company, and owe you no loyalty. They do not look out for your best interest. Do not give them statements or sign any releases for medical records or employment records.

In serious auto accidents, trucking companies and their insurance companies will start investigating the accident immediately.  You need to retain a truck accident attorney immediately to allow an investigation immediately after the wreck.
