In an article published on October 3, 2017, in Claims Journal, Brad Holcombe, partner in Swift Currie’s workers’ compensation group, discusses the importance of using a claimant’s recorded statement. Holcombe explains why the claimant’s statement plays such a vital role and writes that it is essential to retain as much information as possible from each side involved. “Your first step should be to secure as much information as possible from the employer, any witnesses, medical providers and the claimant, as it will impact your approach to the statement once you are on the record,” he writes. Holcombe says that while a recorded statement may be used against a claimant at trial, it is also the first and best opportunity to develop a strong defense, shape the direction of the litigation and demonstrate experience and talents as an interviewer.
