We always recommend that you do not give a recorded statement to the other person’s insurance company without having the advice of an attorney. Please understand – and this is very important – there is no requirement under the law that you give the other insurance company a recorded statement. The insurance company is looking for ways to trip you up, confuse you and otherwise protect its own interests. It is worried about itself, not you.
Be careful if you do speak with them, though. We are all familiar with the now common recording when we call a business that says “This call may be recorded for quality control” or something similar. Thus, this means you are being recorded even if it’s not a formal recorded statement! So avoid any problems and do not give a statement until you have spoken with an attorney to advise you on your rights.
Our personal injury attorneys are available to discuss any accident, injury or death claim with you before you speak with the other person’s insurance company. Feel free to call us or fill out our Web Form for a free consultation.
