Columbus, Ohio. Personal injury trial lawyer, David A. Bressman, has over 20 years of experience representing injury victims. Over that time period, he has come across many who have pretty basic, fairly easy questions that they would like the insurance adjuster to honestly answer. In his experience, most adjusters either refuse to answer or provide misleading information. He presents to you a series of questions, and likely insurance company responses.
"QUESTION 4: If I give you a recorded statement, can I then get a recorded statement from your own insured, i.e., the other driver?
ANSWER: No! This will never happen. It seems fair though doesn’t it? If you have to give a statement about the accident, then why can’t you also get a statement from the other driver? Yet, the insurance adjustor will never allow this for the same reasons you should never give a recorded statement to the insurance company. The adjuster wants to PIN YOU DOWN but, wisely for the insurance company, will never allows its at-fault driver to be similarly boxed in. The adjuster wants YOU to be put in a bad position, period.
