It’s advised that you shouldn’t communicate with the opposing insurance company for fear of information being used against you. In some cases it may be okay to answer like if they ask for specific information about the accident. Additional information pertaining to your injuries or damage to your car may be taken out of context and twisted into false allegations.
Contact your attorney and they will advise you on what and what not to say, they may even communicate for you. If the insurance company calls you, practice caution and only share the facts of the accident if they ask you for them and notify your attorney of the call.
