Do I have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company in a Pennsylvania auto accident case?Return to Video FAQs
After a car accident, you might have multiple insurance companies calling you, asking you about what happened. You have to be really careful about this because not only will your own insurance company call you, but the other person’s insurance company might also call you and they all look to record your statement. And people aren’t careful enough about this.
You have a duty to cooperate with your own insurance company after an accident and it’s a good idea but that might not necessarily mean that you give a recorded statement and so you should try to avoid that if you can. And by no means should you give a recorded statement to anybody else’s insurance company. Do not have a duty to do that and you shouldn’t do that. The reason for that is, they record you without any kind of notice and you’re going to end up saying something that you may regret in the future because you’re not thinking and you’re not being careful and you’re not expecting tricky questions.
