Q: Do I have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company in a Florida auto accident case?
A: There really are two insurance companies in this situation regarding recorded statements. The first is your own company and because you’ve got a policy of insurance with your insurance company, which is basically a contract, you do have to obey the terms of the contract, which normally are a recorded statement. With regards to the insurance company for the at-fault party, by no means should you give a recorded statement to them without the presence of an attorney. In fact, if you do get an attorney involved, it’s a good idea to have the attorney present for both recorded statements.
