Should I give a recorded statement to insurance adjuster after an injury in auto accident?
If you have been injured in an auto accident, you will soon be contacted by an insurance adjuster. The insurance adjuster works for the insurance company, not for you. The adjuster is under no legal or moral duty to protect your rights. The adjuster may be nice and professional. He may tell you that the insurance company has accepted liability and will pay the claim. But how much will they pay? The adjuster will tell you that they cannot give you legal advice and then sit in silence as you make mistakes that could cost you thousands of dollars.
One of the first things he will do is attempt to obtain a recorded statement. Never give a recorded statement without consulting with an experienced injury attorney first. The recorded statement may seem harmless, but it is carefully designed to elicit information that may be harmful to your case. It is critical that you know your rights immediately, so that you can protect yourself from further financial harm.
