But they have an ulterior motive: to get you to say something they can use against you later to reduce or even deny your claim. It could be a simple question like, “How are you feeling today?” and a simple answer like, “Oh, I’m fine. How are you?”
The personal injury attorney Denver at the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya have seen this tactic many times. Later, the insurance company will twist that around and say that you told them in a recorded statement that you’re not in that much pain. If you’re not in that much pain, they’ll say, you can’t be that badly hurt and don’t deserve all that money you’re asking for medical bills.
Worse yet, if you sign any of the forms the friendly adjust sends you – most likely they will be medical releases, and may even include a tiny little check “for your troubles” – you will have forever waived your right to any further compensation or ability to sue.
If you have retained a Denver car accident attorney, the insurance company is not allowed to discuss the details of the accident with you. They must work through your attorney. When an insurance company calls the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya and asks if they can take your recorded statement, our response is simple: We call recorded statements “depositions,” and we’ll let them know when you’re ready to give yours.
