Should I speak with the other person's insurance company after a car accident?

The short answer is “NO”.  After a car accident the other driver’s insurance company will definitely be calling you.  They will seem really nice and try to get a recorded statement from you.  You must remember that the insurance adjusters are trained in taking statements from accident victims.  They will try and get you to slip up and say something that will hurt your injury claim.  They do this because they are looking out for the best interest of the insurance company and to protect their insured.  They will use your statements to argue that you were either entirely at fault for the accident or a percentage at fault.  This way they can either deny your claim entirely or reduce a possible settlement by the percentage of fault they assign you.  Before speaking with the other insurance company or agreeing to give a statement, any injury victim should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney.
