If you are involved in a trucking accident, the trucking company’s insurance agency may call you afterward. This call could be a testament to quick customer response; or it could be because their insurance wants to offer you considerably less than you deserve, hoping to contact you before you speak with a lawyer.
In this case, if an insurance company calls you, it is very important to consider the kind of language and responses you give. Some of their questions could be leading questions – meaning they are trying to general a specific kind of answer from you. The phone conversation could be recorded – so if they get you to say something incriminating, it could be held against you in your claim.
If you do not feel comfortable, you can politely decline answering questions for the moment. After this, you can consult with an attorney to make sure you are taking the right steps after a truck accident. A lawyer can help you present the strongest case possible, and make sure that you are not coerced into making false statements or incriminating evidence that could keep you from getting all the money you deserve.
