The Dangers of Providing a Recorded Statement to the Insurance Company

Written by: The Law Offices of John D. Ameen, P.A.

When you’re injured in an accident and report it to your insurance company, you should expect to be hearing from an adjuster sooner rather than later. While this person may seem like they are on your side, you should be wary of what information you provide about your accident.

Here are five reasons why you should not speak with the insurance company before speaking with your attorney.

Your Statement Used Against You

A recorded statement is rarely used to benefit the injured party. Instead, the insurance company will attempt to use it against your claim.

Your Injuries May Be Not Apparent

Some injuries take days, weeks, or months to show symptoms. If you tell the adjuster you "feel fine," they may deny your claim later on.

Comparing Your Statements

From police reports to recorded statements, your relay of events may have some differences that can be used to disprove your entire claim.

Asking Tricky Questions

Some questions can be tricky. You may not know how to answer them or only give vague answers, like "I don't know" or "I think so."

Your Statement Used in Court

Even if you think your answers sound logical, even slight differences can be used to discredit your entire testimony in court.

The good news is that you don’t have to go through the claims process alone. At the Law Offices of John D. Ameen, our seasoned, caring attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of those injured across the state of Florida.
