You should tell the insurance adjuster that you are represented by an attorney and that all communication about your case should be directed to your attorney. Of course, you can only say this if you are in fact represented by a lawyer. Therefore, it is important to understand what the insurance adjuster is trying to accomplish by getting your recorded statement and how a lawyer can help you in this situation.
The Insurance Adjuster Is Trying to Pay You as Little as Possible
It is the insurance adjuster’s job to maximize the profits for the insurance company which employs him. Insurance companies make money by taking in more premiums than they pay out in claims. For this reason, insurance adjusters want to do whatever they can to minimize the amount that they pay out to people who have been hurt in accidents. One of the ways that they may do this is to get you to give a recorded statement in which they ask you seemingly easy questions that are designed to confuse you or to trick you into saying something that contradicts your injury claim.
