A lot of clients ask me "Should I give a recorded statement to the insurance adjuster?" and the answer is "Absolutely not." We want the insurance company to find out what happened. We want the insurance company to learn the truth. We want the insurance company to hear your side of the story. But they don't need to record you.
The only reason they actually record the statement is so they can try to trap you in your words and use it against you later. They are experts at getting you to say things that they can twist and turn around. Insurance adjusters call me all the time and ask me if they can take a recorded statement of my client. And I ask them if they would allow me to take a recorded statement of their client. In the last 20 years, I've never had a single insurance adjuster agree to let me take a recorded statement of their client.
So if an insurance adjuster is trying to take advantage of you, and is pressuring you to give a recorded statement, give me a call or contact me online. We'll protect you. We deal with these insurance adjusters every day.
