Pedestrian Accident Recorded Statement
In this video, our injury attorney discusses why you should never give a pedestrian accident recorded statement to an insurance company.
Should I speak to an insurance company after a pedestrian accident?
I met with an individual who had been struck in a crosswalk by a vehicle. In the days leading up to talking with me, he’d received numerous phone calls from the other driver’s insurance company, requesting that he give a recorded statement, and he was unsure of his rights as to whether he had to give that statement or not. The answer is, no, there is no requirement to give a recorded statement to an insurance company, especially not before talking to a lawyer first.
Anyone who’s a pedestrian struck by a vehicle and injured should first talk to a lawyer with a track record of successfully prosecuting injury claims for pedestrians who have been struck by motor vehicles, and our firm has that experience. The insurance adjusters are trained to ask questions and elicit responses to eliminate or minimize any payment that they may ultimately have to make for your injuries.
