One of the first questions we ask when you sit down in our office is, “Did you give a recoded statement?” The reason this question is so important is because it gives the insurance company a free shot to try and deny your claim. The purpose of the recorded statement is to look for reasons to deny your workers compensation claim. This is not what you will be led to believe however. Once you are on the phone you will be pressured and told that you really need to do this or you will be told that it is for your own good. You will be told that “If you have nothing to hide then why not give a statement?”
Well, the law does not give them the right to demand you give them a statement. And there is a reason for that. The law makers knew that you should not be compelled to do anything that might jeopardize your St. Louis workers compensation case. Since you are not a lawyer, you will not know all of the intricacies of the law. Without this knowledge, you may phrase something in a way, or be led to phrase something in a way that will be detrimental to your case.
