Should I give a recorded statement about my truck accident injury?
I’m asked by folks about giving statements to insurance companies in trucking cases and other cases. My advice is never give a statement to the insurance company. You don’t have to. You don’t need to. You shouldn’t do it. Whatever you say to them is going to be used against you.
A common example is what time was it when the wreck happened? Then the next question is how did you know what time it was? I looked at my watch. Then you looked away from the road. That will be what comes up from the insurance defense lawyer. We have it here written down. You were looking at your watch at the time. I’m not going to follow up with that in the statement from the insurance adjuster, but you can bet your bottom dollar that the defense attorney will do that. They’re going to use that against you at some later date.
There’s nothing you can do to help your case by talking to an insurance adjuster in a trucking case or any other case for that matter. Please keep that in mind. Don’t talk to the insurance company on the other side. If you have other questions like this, please feel free to call my office here in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
