Do I Have To Give A Recorded Statement To The Insurance Company In A California Auto Accident Case?
No, there is no law in California that says that anyone involved in a traffic collision has to give a recorded statement. There may be a clause in your own insurance policy that says something to the effect, they have to cooperate with your insurance, but there is no law in California that says you have to give a recorded statement to either your insurance or the other driver’s insurance. In fact, I strongly recommend that you not give a recorded statement to the other driver’s insurance. The only reason they want to get that information is to use it against you later.
