Do Not Give A Recorded Statement
You do not have to give one! When you are making an accident claim, you are not obligated to give a recorded statement to the insurance adjuster, even though they will make you think it is required. Let the adjuster do their homework! If they have questions about the facts of the accident, they can look at the police report. If they have questions about your injuries, they can look at the copies of medical records and bills that either you or your attorney you will send them after you have completed being treated. Adjusters will ask you questions that are designed to elicit the answers that will best suit their needs. They will try to trick you – for example, rather than ask you to make a list of all your injuries, they would ask; “How are you feeling today,” a question designed for you to respond as usual by saying “Fine.” You can’t go back and change your statements later, once they have you “on record” they will use what you said against you! Also, your condition, symptoms, pain is likely to change over time. You may have good days and bad days and you may respond on a day you may be feeling better which the adjuster will use to minimize your injuries. Ask the adjuster to SHOW you in writing if there is any legal requirement that you give a recorded statement when making a third party accident injury claim.

That's what CNN discovered in an 18-month investigation into minor-impact soft-tissue injury crashes around the country. Those are accidents in which there is little damage to the vehicle and the injuries to people are not easy to see by the naked eye or conventional medical tools like X-rays.
