Car accident claims often prompt insurance companies to call those parties involved and demand a recorded statement. However, it’s essential to understand your rights in a personal injury claim and whether you are required to give a statement regarding the incident or your injuries. Contacting a lawyer serving Gaithersburg and Rockville before giving a statement is your best course of action to prevent making unintended statements that could hurt your personal injury claim.
This video explains that insurance companies often try to obtain recorded statements immediately after an accident, before you have seen a police report or spoken with an attorney. While some insurance policies do require you to give a statement, in many cases you are not required to submit a recorded statement—your personal injury lawyer can help you determine whether a statement is needed and how to address the questions you will be asked to best aid your personal injury claim.
