Unless yours is a workers compensation case, the answer is absolutely not, except as required to politely provide basic identifying information and to confirm that you have been injured and will be having an attorney contact them. This is because you can unknowingly do tremendous harm to your position. Among other traps and pitfalls awaiting you are efforts to obtain statements from you or to talk you into signing an authorization letting them get your medical records or even to communicate with your doctor! From there it usually only gets worse, since the insurance company has a much more powerful bargaining position as the matter plays out. This holds true regardless of whether you have a car accident, medical malpractice, defective product or wrongful death case. In workers compensation cases you may have a duty to cooperate with the insurer.
