Recorded Statements After an Accident: Motorcycle Lawyer Advice

After an accident, motorcycle insurance companies will be all over you to give a recorded statement. You should not give a recorded statement to any insurance company.

accident motorcycle new jerseyI am seeing a large percentage of client’s come to me after they have given recorded statements over the telephone.

Many of them believe that because it’s their own insurance company they are required to give a statement.

This is absolutely not the case.

Not only are you not required to give a statement with regard to how the accident occurred, you are in no way bound to give a recorded statement at all.

This also goes for any and all requests made to give a statement by the other individual’s insurance company; especially before speaking with your New Jersey motorcycle accident lawyer.

These recorded statements rarely do anything but help the insurance companies look for ways to deny motorcycle accident claims.

“Just the Facts”

If you feel compelled to report the accident to your own insurance company before consulting a motorcycle attorney, you should keep the motorcycle accident facts to a minimum and insist that it not be recorded.

Any request by the other party’s insurance company should be limited to the location of your motorcycle until after you have spoken to a motorcycle accident attorney.
