If you are injured, an insurance company is probably going to be involved in your case. Insurance companies for the person or legal entity that caused your injury do not care about you, except to the extent that they want to resolve your case as cheaply as possible. The insurance company does not care if you receive a fair settlement. It doesn't matter how nice or not nice the person on the telephone is who calls you after your accident – the insurance company is looking out for its interests, not yours.
The insurance company is a business whose whole sole purpose is to make money by selling policies and minimizing payouts on claims. They have been doing it for a very long time, and they are very good at it. If you have a legal claim against someone the insurance company insures, you can bet that the insurance company will do whatever it can to pay you as little as possible on your claim. It's their job.
Insurance companies hope you don't have a lawyer, because they know that if you have a good lawyer, it is going to be significantly more difficult to pay you anything less than what your case is actually worth.
It is true that the things you do after a wreck will go a long way toward helping you recover the compensation you need for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages. At the scene of the wreck, you should call the police and take pictures of the scene if you are able. Afterwards you should seek medical attention. Only after seeking medical attention should you contact a lawyer.
