Atlanta Car Accident Lawyer Answers Question - Do I have to give a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster?
The insurance company's use the recorded statement to look for any reason to deny your claim. They want to try and get you to say that you were going a certain speed. After you are on tape, they will check to see if the speed limit was less than what you said. They want to get you to say what hurts, and then deny paying for any injury you forgot to list. Maybe they can get you to say you took a prescription drug earlier in the day or that you answered your cell phone. All of these are things they do to look for a reason to deny your claim.
