The insurance company wants me to give a recorded statement, should I do it?

Absolutely not. You are not required to do so and you should never agree to do so. Remember, anything that you say can and will be twisted and taken out of context and used against you later. The insurance adjusters may tell you that you are required to do so, but this is not true. The insurance adjuster may be very friendly to you in the beginning, but this is only an act. Their job is to pay you as little as possible.

This is one of the biggest mistakes that people make when they try to represent themselves, or they have already given a recorded statement before they have had a chance to get proper legal advise from their attorney.
