Should I Give the Insurance Company a Recorded Statement?
Attorney Casey Woodruff discusses why we recommend that you do not give the insurance company a car accident recorded statement.
In the first days and moments following a serious auto accident you will frequently be contacted by the insurance adjuster for the driver who hit you. We strongly recommend you not provide a recorded statement while unrepresented to the insurance adjuster. While it may seem simple and straight forward and what have you got to lose? When all you simple wish to do is tell the truth.
