Do I have to talk to the other driver's insurance company or provide them a recorded statement?

You are not obligated to speak with the other party's insurance company or provide them a recorded statement. In fact, at Pothitakis Law Firm we discourage giving a recorded statement or discussions with the insurance company prior to our representation. The problem with insurance companies, is that their business model is to limit the damages that they will have to pay as a result of their insured's mistakes. Information that is conveyed early on in the process can have a significant impact on the value of your automobile accident claim. For this reason, Pothitakis Law Firm advises clients as well as potential clients to not speak with the other party's insurance company until they have sought the advice of a competent automobile accident attorney.
