NO, you do not need to give a statement to the other person’s insurance company after an accident.
You do not have a contract with the other person’s insurance company and you have no obligation to cooperate with their investigation or make a statement. They will tell you it is necessary for them to fully investigate your claim; they’ll lead you to believe that if you don’t make a statement, they won’t pay you. Neither of these statements are true. Any statement you make can be twisted in the insurance company's favor. Do not make a statement, say as little as possible if and when they call.
