Recorded Statements: Do I Have to Give One?

If you’re injured in an auto accident, a slip and fall, or bitten by a vicious dog, and you report the incident to your insurance company, you will likely be asked to make a statement. These statements are taken — and recorded — by insurance companies in nearly every case.

We are often asked whether a recorded statement is really necessary and whether an accident victim needs to give one. Our advice: remember that you are being recorded and to speak with your experienced accident attorney before giving any statements to any insurance company — yours or the other party’s.

Summer Months Mean More Teen Driving Accidents

Summer is here and in the San Fernando Valley, that means we can expect a lot more cars on the road. Why? Because school is out and teen drivers are making the most of their summer break.

The increase in the number of teen drivers on local roads may not be good news for everyone. Statistically speaking, teen drivers are the demographic most likely to cause auto-related accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident caused by a teen driver, speak to an experienced accident attorney about your legal rights.

Numerous studies on brain development have shown that the brain doesn’t reach full maturity until the mid-twenties, long after teenagers can apply for their drivers license. While distracted driving can happen at any age, teenagers have been more likely to engage in typical distracted driving behaviors like texting and driving. Additionally, if they are driving with friends in the car, they can be easily distracted, which leads to less paying attention to the road and more car accidents. Unfortunately, many teen drivers also drive while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
