Should I give the insurance company a recorded statement?
Very typically, you will be asked to provide a recorded statement to the adjuster regarding the facts of the collision. One purpose of this is to get you committed to a set of facts regarding the accident. Our office recommends against giving a recorded statement until such time as you are reasonably able to do so. We also recommend that it not be given without the assistance of counsel. Insurance adjusters are trained professionals and another purpose of their recorded statement is to obtain admissions against interest. It is important that you realize your words can be used against you when it comes time to evaluate liability in all collision cases. An unintentional slip of the tongue can be costly. Call us before you give a statement to get some of the most important advice and information you can get, at no cost and with no obligation.
