Do I have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company in a Florida auto accident case?
If you are contacted by an insurance company and are asked to give a recorded statement, the first thing you need to do is make sure you know who you’re talking to. Is it your insurance company or is it the person who hit you’s insurance company? Get their name, get their number, ask them what insurance company they’re with, because you absolutely do not have to give a recorded statement to the person who hit you’s insurance company. I highly recommend against that. If it is your insurance company, you do have an obligation to cooperate with them and give a recorded statement. However, I would advise that you have the services of an attorney so that you understand your rights, because sometimes your insurance company will ask questions tending to minimize your injuries, because they may have to step into the shoes of the person that hit you and pay your claim as well.
