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

In a Florida auto accident case when we get a request for a recorded statement, the very first question that we ask is, who is asking for that recorded statement? In Florida, you have a contract with your insurance company and as a result you have to cooperate. If they request a recorded statement then you are required to give them the recorded statement. However, if the insurance company requesting the statement is someone else's insurance company, then you're not required to cooperate with them as far as giving them a recorded statement. Sometimes they'll ask for one, but that doesn't mean you're required 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, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable”
“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.”
