After a wreck with a big truck, a representative of the truck’s insurance company may call you about the accident. They may tell you that they are investigating the accident and would like to take your recorded statement. You should not give a statement to the other person’s insurance company. Louisiana law does not require you to give a statement to the other person’s insurance company. In most cases, one of the goals of the insurance adjuster is to get you on a recording saying that your injuries are not that bad. Insurance adjusters receive lots of training on how to interview victims of truck accidents. They use leading questions and oftentimes ask you to agree with them that you are not injured or that your injuries are not significant.
When we take on a case, we tell our clients that the only thing they have to tell the insurance adjuster is to call us!
