Should I give an insurance adjuster a recorded statement?

If you are seriously injured in a car accident and are asked to give a recorded statement to the insurance company, just say no until you have spoken with a car accident lawyer.

Many times, adjusters will ask for a recorded statement while you are still in the hospital on medication or weak from your injuries.

Additionally, if you are unfamiliar with legal terminalogy, you may be asked questions in such a way as to provide a basis for denying your claim. 

If you are asked to give a statement, ask the adjuster to show you the at-fault drivers recorded statement first. See if he or she will give you a copy.
