Asked in Personal Injury for Alabama

Q: Do I have legal right to receive transcript of phone calls I gave consent to be recorded?

My car insurance company has been rather nasty. I am looking for an attorney & want to give her/him a clear picture if case. I requested transcripts of insurance company conversations & insurance company refuses. Do I have a legal right to my own conversation?

A: I suggest you contact a member ot the Alabama Assn for Justice who handles "bad faith" claims---they give free consultations. Generally you can ask but they don't have to give without a subpoena. If appropriate a complaint can be filed with the Insurance Commissioner and they can require it, but first get the consultation.

A: When you file the lawsuit against the insurance company under the rules governing discovery you will have the right to receive the transcripts.
