A Request for a Recorded Statement

May 2018

At first, the request by the opposing insurance adjuster to take a recorded statement may seem reasonable.  The insurance adjuster may advise you that they are simply asking for your side of the story or want to be updated about your injuries.  However, the purpose of the recorded statement is not something that is done to help the injured.  The recorded statement is many times used to help devalue and deny meritorious claims.

Insurance adjusters are trained in the use of recorded statements.  You can expect the insurance adjuster that calls you will have been trained on how to take a recorded statement and the questions to be asked that favor the insurance company.  Many insurance companies require their adjusters to go to training and seminars which often include topics involving the taking and use of recorded statements.
