When notifying your insurer after a New Jersey truck accident, you must be careful in how you choose your words. This is because whatever you say can be used to reduce the value of your claim.

Even a seemingly innocuous answer to a seemingly harmless question may cause harm to your New Jersey truck accident claim, if it can be determined that your injuries are less severe than you have stated or your life hasn't been impacted in the way in which you have claimed.

Some of the questions an adjuster may ask you include: 

  • What were you doing just before the New Jersey truck accident occurred?
  • What did you do immediately after the New Jersey truck accident?
  • How have the injuries which you suffered from the accident affected your daily life?
  • What medical treatments have you received? 


Questions that require more than a "yes" or "no" answer are the riskiest. Stick to the plain and simple facts of the accident. Any additional information which you provide can be used against you. This is true whether you speak to your own insurer, or to another driver's insurance company.

In fact, before speaking to an adjuster, it is best that you first consult a New Jersey truck accident lawyer. An attorney can advise you on how to handle your New Jersey truck accident claim or even handle all of the communications on your behalf.
