Hello, I'm Locke Meredith with a Legal Lines tip for you. Never give a recorded statement or give a written statement without first seeing an attorney.
Remember, you can always see an attorney for the most part free on the first visit. Get educated. Knowledge is power. Learn what the consequences are of the decision. Learn what the issues are. And then if you feel necessary, give the recorded statement.
Remember, in Louisiana, we have what's called comparative fault. Typically what that means is the judge or jury is required to divide fault up amongst all the players to decide who pays what in damages. Recorded statements are often used in depositions and trials to argue that the victim or the plaintiff is partially at fault for their own damages to reduce the amount that they collect. So my Legal Lines tip from me, Locke Meredith, to you is don't give a recorded statement.
