No. In most cases, I advise against it. There is very little to be gained by giving a statement to the other party’s insurance company. This is especially true at the beginning of a case when you probably don’t have a full understanding of the extent of your injuries. Statements are rarely used in your favor. In most cases, they will use the statement against you. I’m not saying it’s true for all insurance adjusters, but after working for years in the insurance industry, I have rarely seen a recorded statement be helpful to a plaintiff.
