In general, the only reason the insurance adjuster for the other insurance company wants your statement is to attempt to to build a defense against your claim or to minimize the payment of the claim.
While speaking with the insurance adjusters – both your own and the other parties – is fine, it is best to do so under the guidance of an experienced Long Island Personal Injury attorney. If you speak with the insurance adjusters before consulting with an attorney, you could reduce or negate the compensation you deserve.
