If you're wondering whether or not you should give a recorded statement to the insurance company, the answer to that question was both simple, yet complex. First of all, it depends on who is asking for the recorded statement. If your own insurance company is asking for the recorded statement and they're conditioning that statement on the payment of PIP benefits, then, according to your policy, you need to give the recorded statement. However, you shouldn't do anything prior to talking to a lawyer. If the other side, the at-fault parties and insurance companies, are asking for the recorded statement, in no circumstances is it advisable to give you one.

Insurance companies make money by collecting premiums and not paying out claims. They will look for any reason whatsoever to catch you in a lie, or make you trip up over your words. The problem with giving a recorded statement is then the insurance company has you locked in the place and you can't deviate whatsoever from that recorded statement. Generally, they also don't give you a copy of that recorded statement, so there is no way to remember what you said if you end up having to file a lawsuit later on down the road. Either way, it's never advisable to give a recorded statement to the at-fault parties and insurance company. While there may be certain circumstances when you need to give one to your own insurance company, before you talk to any insurance company you need to consult with a lawyer first.
