Attleboro Car Crash Attorney

Should I give a recorded statement after a Car Accident in Massachusetts

Attorney DelSignore has been representing clients in the Attleboro area since he started his practice in 2001. When you are in a car accident you want an Attleboro lawyer that is familiar with the court system and the local community. Attorney DelSignore is very well known in the Attleboro District Court where your case would likely go if the insurance company was not willing to settle the case.

It can be a mistake to call a lawyer with a Big Television ad to take your car accident case. Often, the lawyer in the ad will not handle the case and usually has no experience in the local court system. You want to hire someone that you can reach, go to their offense and be confident that if the insurance company will not offer you a fair settlement, that your attorney has the trial experience to repent you in front of a jury.

Should you take to the insurance adjuster?

You have been involved in a car accident and are now getting constant calls from the insurance adjuster. The insurance adjuster says he or she needs to take your statement. But should you give a statement. The answer is no. You do not want to give a statement to the opposing party insurance company. They can get your statement by hiring a lawyer and taking your deposition. You want them to go through that process to get information about the case.

When you give a recorded statement, you will be held to your prior statement even if you may have misunderstood the questions, not understand the questions you can reduce the value of your case. You can always present your version to the insurance company, but you want to do it when it makes the most sense for your case.

Typically, you will want to let your attorney control the follow of information to the insurance company. This is best by not giving any recorded statement.

Often, insurance adjuster can be aggressive in trying to get you to make a recorded statement before a lawyer gets involved. An adjuster may say something like, I need to take your statement, or you have to give a statement so I can evaluate the claim. None of that is true.

The insurance adjuster does not have any right to your recorded statement unless it is your own insurance company. Even in that circumstance, you should speak to a lawyer prior to giving a statement. We will advocate for your position with the insurance company and be ready for trial should you not be able to resolve a favorable settlement of your injury claim.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Michael was very professional and explained the process clearly and told us to be patient. After one year the charges got dismissed in the trial. Excellent knowledge of the court systems in the area of Boston. Would highly recommend him Ashwani
★★★★★
A careless decision on my part left me facing charges which would have severely hampered my ability to stay employed and support myself. But attorney DelSignore's skillful analysis and challenging of the evidence against me resulted in a conviction on a lesser charge. Now I'll be able to go on with my life, having learned a lesson I'll never forget. Thank you, Michael. Scott
★★★★★
Mike stuck with my case for 3.5 years and always kept me informed regarding the status. Ultimately, because of his due diligence, we ended up with an OUI not guilty verdict. This case could have gone many ways but his thorough review of the case and exceptional preparedness for trial ultimately drove a positive outcome. Thank you Mike! David
★★★★★

★★★★★
I cannot express the gratitude towards both Michael and Julie for their amazing work and help. It was a very stressful event and they certainly put me at as much ease as possible. From start to finish it took 14 months and all the way through they were both very engaged with me. Today was worth the wait, Michael was great in court and I was rightfully found not guilty. I would recommend Michael and Julie over and over again. Claire
