The 5 Things to Remember When Asked to Give a Statement

When asked to give a statement following some type of accident or injury, please keep these basic steps in mind. In doing so you will help preserve your rights.

1. It's OK to give a statement, but speak to an attorney first.

An attorney can help you avoid any pitfalls and prevent any damage to your case.

2. Be clear that the opposing party's wrongdoing caused your injuries.

You will not be able to make a claim unless it is clear someone else's negligence or wrongdoing caused your injuries.

3. Always ask for a copy of the statement.

If you can, it's also a good idea to record the statement yourself.

4. Do not agree to give a statement unless they agree to give you a copy of the statement.

Avoid problems later by making it clear you want a copy of the statement.

5. Run the event through your head or with your attorney beforehand.

Make sure you are consistent with your recollection to avoid major discrepancies.

Following any type of accident or injury, it is wise to speak with a knowledgeable Kansas City personal injury lawyer before making any kind of statement. An attorney can provide you with sound legal counsel and guidance and make sure your rights and best interests are protected at all times.
