Do I have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company in a Florida auto accident case?
In an automobile accident case you have a duty to cooperate with your own insurance company. If they contact you on the telephone and wish to take a recorded statement, you do have to give a recorded statement. You do not have to give a recorded statement to the at fault parties automobile insurance carrier.
If however you are contacted by your own insurance company, I would suggest that you go to a lawyer that specializes in automobile accidents and have a court reporter present so that you have an accurate transcript, because sometimes the machines, the little devices used by the insurance adjuster on the telephone do not take accurate recordings. It’s extremely important that you tell the adjuster everything about your case and that it’s accurately transcribed.
