My insurance company wants me to make a recorded statement. Should I?
Say no until you talk to your lawyer. You are not required to give a recorded statement, and recorded statements are often used against people who are seeking coverage after a car accident. Insurance adjusters are trained to ask questions in a way that makes your answer more likely to hurt your claim – no matter what you say. They are also trained to avoid paying claims when they can. Cooperate with your insurance company by notifying them and reporting the facts, but do not give a statement until you talk to your car accident attorney.
