Following an injury it’s very typical, almost standard practice for an insurance company to ask for a recorded statement. The question to ask is: should I give it? Should I give a recorded statement to the insurance company? You don’t have to and the only reason why they’re being done is to help the insurance company to give them a head start in building a case against you. Following an injury, if you feel the pressure and you feel as if you have to give a statement then take a step back. Get the advice of someone that knows what they’re doing and then proceed accordingly. Whether that is to give the statement or not, but more often than not, almost equivocally we say no don’t give a statement. Don’t give the insurance company a head start. It doesn’t do anything for you and at the end of the day they’re using that information to figure out how not to compensate you properly.
