Never give a recorded statement to the insurance company for the other driver until you’ve spoken to a lawyer and gotten advice.
The insurance company and the insurance adjusters have an agenda. That agenda is to protect themselves and to protect their money. It’s not to protect you. It’s not to help you with your claim. It’s to save as much money as they can. The manner in which they ask the questions are slanted to help them and not to help you.
If you’re like most people, you’re going to be honest; you just want to help them, and you just want to get your claim settled, but you don’t have the experience that they do. You’re not on an even playing field with them; you’re at a substantial disadvantage. My advice is never give a recorded statement to them until you’ve had a chance to talk to an attorney.
If the insurance adjuster’s calling you and hounding you for a recorded statement, here’s what you tell them, “I’d be glad to give you a recorded statement, but I’ve got to talk to my attorney first. As soon as I get my attorney and talk to him, my attorney will be in contact with you,” and that’s all you need to say.
