Below are 10 things you should do (or not do) if your car was hit by a company truck driver. Companies with their own fleet of trucks include FedEx, UPS, Walmart, and many others.
Do Not Talk to Other Insurance Companies or Sign Anything. You will most likely be contacted by insurance companies regarding the accident. Do not speak to them. Do not sign anything! If you have not retained a lawyer, tell the insurance representative that you are retaining a lawyer and that the lawyer will contact them. If you have retained a lawyer, give the insurance company representative the phone number of the law firm and no other information. Most people do not realize that even a friendly conversation with an insurance representative can be used against them. For example, most insurance representatives will express concern and ask how you are and/or how your child is if the child was involved in the accident. Do not answer them. Give them our phone number (1-888-377-8900) and say nothing else. Remember that insurance representatives are trained to get information from you that the insurance company can use in its favor.
