It is common for insurance companies and corporations investigating an accident to ask witnesses and the injured party for a written and/or recorded statement. However, you are not obligated to give such a statement. When trying to determine whether to give a statement, you must bear in my mind that you may be in shock immediately after an accident and it is often wise to wait. You should also be aware that it can be very difficult to change your statement once it is taken.
