Is a recorded statement after an auto accident mandatory? Yes, it’s mandatory but it depends on who’s asking for the recording. If it’s your insurance company, then you have to do a recording. You don’t have to do it without an attorney. An attorney can be present on the line, but you have to do a recording because you have a contract with that company.
If it’s the opposing side, the at-fault party’s insurance company, you do not have to do a recording with that company. It would be like giving them a free deposition, that’s like giving them free evidence to use against you. Remember they work for the other side, they’re not there to help you. They’re there to help they’re insured, their insurance company and the company itself. Even though sometimes in Florida, it may be Geico-Geico or Progressive-Progressive the agents are separate.
