If the Negligent Driver’s Insurance Company Asks me to Give them a Recorded Statement, Should I?

By Breyer Law Offices on April 27, 2010

Absolutely not. Even if they tell you it’s required, don’t listen to them because that’s not true. In Arizona, under the law, you do not have to give a recorded statement to the negligent driver’s insurance company. But the insurance company uses this as a tactic to pressure people like you into giving a statement.

As Arizona car accident attorneys, we can’t tell you how many people we have seen who don’t understand why they shouldn’t talk to the insurance company. They think as long as they tell the truth, everything will be fine. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. The reason is that the insurance company is not necessarily concerned with being fair and equitable; they are most concerned with paying out the least amount of money possible for your claim. As a result, if you give a recorded statement, the insurance company may try to twist your words in their favor. You’d be much better off giving a written statement, where you won’t be speaking off the cuff and say something that could be taken out of context.

If the negligent driver’s insurance company is pressuring you to give a recorded statement, then please consult with an attorney. At Breyer Law Offices, our Phoenix injury lawyers are just a phone call away and can help you properly deal with the insurance company to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
