Los Angeles, CA asked in Insurance Bad Faith for Florida

Q: Real estate insurance claim recorded statement

I’m in a process of real estate insurance claim and adjuster wants to have a recorded statement from me. Do I really obligated to give him a statement or I can refuse a statement?! Also, most likely I’ll hire a lawyer, if the amount offered is low. A loss mitigation company was dispatched to reduce a loss to the property, but an adjuster already stated it made it worse. So I can read between the lines…if you’re ready for a representation you can email me as well asap, thank you.

A: It depends what your insurance policy says about the requirement to give a recorded statement.
