Motorcycle Accident Recorded Statement
In this video, our Florida injury attorney discusses why you should never give a motorcycle accident recorded statement to an insurance company.
Should I speak with insurance companies after a motorcycle accident?
Oftentimes people will ask me, after they’ve been in a motorcycle accident, if it’s okay for them to give a recorded statement to the insurance company that represents the driver that hit them. In those types of scenarios, I always advise them that it is not smart to give a recorded statement to that insurance company. The insurance adjusters have much more experience in dealing with these types of claims than you do.
The insurance company is going to look out for their own interest, and in order to do that they will ask you questions that try to get you to commit to a position that could hurt you later. That’s why it is imperative to speak to a lawyer, sooner rather than later, who can help you deal with these questions. You should have an attorney present with you and actually on the phone call when an at-fault person’s insurance company wants to take your recorded statement.
