Recorded Statements Can be a Trap for the Unwary

Are you worried you’ll be put in a trap if your statements are recorded?

Are you worried the insurance company will minimize your worker’s compensation benefits?

Are you having a hard time making ends meet?

If the insurance company wants you to make a recorded statement, it’s important that you know how to answer their questions properly. Having Colorado worker’s compensation attorneys on your side is crucial to having the best possible outcome for your case.

After establishing rapport and confirming some basic information, the representative may ask leading questions such as:
  • You've been at this job a long time haven't you?
  • Did anything unusual happen that day?
  • How has your accident affected your leisure activities? 

When an adjuster asks these kinds of questions, it means one thing: the insurance company is looking for a good reason to deny your claim.

Your attorney can serve as a buffer, protecting your rights while communicating with the insurance company. There are many ways to do this without jeopardizing your claim. Your attorney may agree to a recorded statement if he or she can be present. Your attorney may also ask the insurance adjuster to provide questions in writing, so you’ll be prepared ahead of time. However, your attorney may be able to resolve your claim through negotiations with the insurance company without requiring a recorded statement from you.
