What Should I Say to the Insurance Adjuster When He Calls After My Truck Accident in NC?

“What you say to any representative from the insurance company could have a significant impact on your ability to pursue compensation for your injuries and damages to your personal property. In our experience, when you talk to the insurance adjuster after your accident, it is best to stick to discussing the property damage you suffered. You should not agree to a recorded statement and you should not discuss your injuries other than to acknowledge that you were injured and will deal with the injury portion of your claim after you are done with any needed treatment.”


Liability in a trucking accident may include the following parties:

  • The trucking company
  • The owner of the trailer
  • The owner of the cab
  • The truck driver
  • The driver’s employer
  • An outside or third party that maintained the truck
