After the accident, the truck company’s insurance representative may contact you to ask for a recorded statement or for a signed release form. Take caution and refrain from saying or signing anything before consulting your attorney, as you may inadvertently put your legal stand at a disadvantage.
You are under no obligation to cooperate with the insurance company of the party in question and any statement you make may be twisted or used with the intention to shift the blame for the accident from the truck company to you.
