Do I have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company in a car accident case?

In order to answer this question we have to look at which insurance company is actually requesting the statement. If it's your own insurance company, you may be required to give that statement because you actually have a contract with your insurance company through the policy that requires you to not only cooperate but also give statements whether it's for PIP or Liability when they request it. If the request is coming from the adverse party or defendant's insurance company, then typically you're not required to give that statement because you don't have a contract with them. Therefore, they can't force you to.

“The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again.”

“After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court.”
