Answers to Personal Injury, Wrongful Death, and Car Accident Questions
Q: Should I Give a Recorded Statement to the Insurance Company? The Adjustor for the Other Driver's Insurance Company Wants to Record My Version of the Accident.
A: It is very normal for the insurance company to request you to provide a recorded statement to the insurance adjuster right after an accident. The main reason is to have you commit to specific information about how the accident happened and your injuries. We recommend that you do not give a recorded statement at all! You are not required to give one and it only helps the insurance company to destroy your case (no matter what you say, they will use it against you). If you believe you should go ahead and give a recorded statement, please don't do so until you are fully prepared and have given wise thought to your words. It may be in your benefit to seek assistance from an attorney first since an adjuster's goal is to use that recorded statement to gain proof to use against your best interest. You must understand that anything you say may be used as a tactic against you and can lessen your chances or ruin your claim. The best thing you can do to protect yourself is to give our law office a call before giving a statement and obtain all the valuable information and knowledge needed to fight your claim and be able to use your recorded statement to your best advantage.
