In the infancy of your claims, specifically right after you lodge a claim against the negligent party’s insurance, you may receive a phone call from an adjuster. These phone calls are almost always recorded and transcribed for the insurance company to use in its evaluation of your claims.
Whether you should a recorded statement or not depends on whether you have hired a NC Personal Injury Attorney prior to the recorded phone call. If you are represented, politely explain to the adjuster that you have hired representation and give them the contact information of your personal injury attorney. If you are not yet represented, you may answer the questions of the insurance adjuster.
If you are contemplating hiring a personal injury attorney but have not yet done so at the time of the recorded call, make sure to request a copy of the transcript of your recorded call so that you can supply that to your personal injury attorney.
