Should I talk to an insurance company after a truck accident in Wisconsin?
The question is, should you talk to an insurance company after a truck wreck? The answer is absolutely, unequivocally, no, no, no. Why is that? These are typically high-value cases, and that’s why they get adjusters on them so quickly. I’ve had clients that get called within three hours, when they get home after the emergency room, by representatives of insurance companies.
Why do some people talk to them? Because they pretend they’re your best friend. “Oh, we’re so sorry. What can we do for you? How can we help? Can we send someone over?” They’ll send someone over, but then they’ll try to get you to give a recorded statement. The answer is there’s nothing to gain and everything to lose. I tell my clients if they do contact you and you want to give them your name, and you want to get their name, claim number, phone number, that’s fine. If they seek legal help, their lawyer is going to need that anyway. Beyond that, the takeaway answer is no. If you’ve got a case like that, give us a call. We can help.
