Can the Insurance Adjuster Deny My Claim If I Do Not Give a Recorded Statement?

No, but the insurance company does need to investigate the accident. The adjuster may be entitled to certain evidence and documents, but before you provide any statements or documents to the insurer, please check with your lawyer first.

What Are My Options When It Comes to Talking with an Insurance Adjuster?

The best option is to consult your lawyer prior to giving a statement or turning over documents. Your lawyer can guide you prior to giving the statement, and even handle communications with the insurance company for you.

So if the insurance company is calling you and asking for a recorded statement or other information, speak with a lawyer. Only talk with the adjuster or anyone else from the insurance company if your lawyer clears it. You have nothing to gain and everything to lose if you give the insurance adjuster a recorded statement.
