Do I have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company in a Florida auto accident case?
With regard to giving a recorded statement after an auto accident, the answer is pretty much two part. First of all, the insurance company for the other driver or the at fault driver would probably want to get a recorded statement from you. I never allow that for my clients. It’s very important that you talk to a lawyer before you get any kind of statement. Now, with regard to your own company, your insurance company that insures you, they are entitled to investigate the accident, and you do have a responsibility to cooperate with them. However, I also would suggest that you have a lawyer be on the phone when you’re giving that recorded statement to make sure the parameters of the questions that are being asked are appropriate.
