The insurance adjuster asked me to record a statement. Should I do that?

If an insurance adjuster asks you to take a recorded statement, the first question I would have is: Whose insurance adjuster is this? If it's your own insurance adjuster from your insurance company, then you are required to cooperate and you are required to give a statement. Of course, we recommend hiring an experienced personal injury attorney prior to that statement so they can help guide you on what to say and how to say it. In the State of Florida, if you are involved in an accident and you get a request for a statement from someone else's insurance company, because you don't have any contract, there's no privity with that insurance company. Technically, they cannot require you to give that statement.

What Our Clients Say
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. - M.P.
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 - D.L.
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. - S.C.
