After an on the job injury, should I give the insurance company a recorded statement?

We help people in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. 

We only represent people and families; patients injured because of preventable medical mistakes, children with cerebral palsy, workers with on-the-job injuries, people injured in serious car accidents, and families who have lost a loved one.  That's all we do.



No. You should never give a statement without your lawyer present. Insurance adjusters are trained to ask the same questions over and over in slightly different ways, trying to get the injured person to make a mistake or give them some sort of inconsisitency - one they will try to use to deny or delay your workers compensation claim and benefits, including medical treatment and monetary benefits. 

Remember, the insurance company doesn't work for you - it works for its shareholders. Insurance adjusters are trained (and its their job) to deny workers compensation claims, and pay less in benefits and medical treatment.  A recorded statement just gives them one more tool to deny payment for legitimate injuries.
