A couple of weeks ago I was driving my gf’s truck (she was passenger, I was designated driver) when someone who wasn’t paying attention (his words) pulled out from a stop sign directly into our path (we had the right of way).
The Progressive Insurance agent who represents the inattentive driver called to discuss the accident with me. He confirmed my name, age, address, then said he wanted me to tell him what happened and he would record me. Whoa. I told him I wanted to discuss with my lawyer whether I should consent to being recorded.
So, while I wait for a return call from my lawyer, what say y’all? I’ve never had an insurance agent ask if he could record me. Is this standard practice? Should I consent?
