Do Not Give A Recorded Statement To A Car Insurance Company
The main objective of any claims adjuster handling a car accident claim is to settle the claim for the least amount of money possible. That really is what claims adjusters are paid to do. As a Boston car accident attorney, I can tell you that one of the most important things NOT to do is to give a recorded statement to the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
Following your accident, whether it be a motor vehicle accident, bicycle accident, truck accident, pedestrian accident, or whatever type of Massachusetts personal injury accident you may have been involved in, the adjuster for the at-fault party will seek to obtain a statement from you of your account on how the accident happened. Remember, this is a recorded statement that may come back to haunt you later on when you are trying to settle your claim. I therefore strongly encourage you not to offer a recorded statement.
The adjuster will ask you certain pointed questions that will hopefully, from the perspective of the insurance company, weaken your claim, and thus reduce the amount of money your claim will be worth. Remember, you do not have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company; you are under no obligation to do so. I suggest you hire a Boston car accident attorney to handle your claim for you, but, if you choose to pursue your claim without an attorney, please, refuse to provide a recorded.
