Should I speak with the truck company’s insurance company following a Florida truck accident?
Author: Attorney Jay Kanter
You should not give a statement to an insurance company following a truck accident without seeking representation from an attorney. Statements given soon after an accident occurs are often crucial in determining fault for the accident and what potential damages have been incurred.
It is very important to seek legal advice before giving a statement. An experienced truck accident attorney will thoroughly investigate the accident scene, get statements from all witnesses to the accident, and retain an accident reconstruction expert if needed.
Truck accidents have the potential to cause serious bodily injury with lifelong effects and consequences. It is essential to get the proper medical attention and documentation before a statement is given to the insurance company. Many statements made by parties involved in a truck accident can be used against you months or even years after an accident. The truth will remain the same, but there are many ways to present a true and accurate factual statement in a clear and concise manner that will be beneficial to your injury case.
