Every person who shall take a written, recorded, or transcribed statement from any injured person with respect to any accident or with respect to any injury to person or property shall furnish to the person making such statement a true and complete copy thereof; provided, that in no event nor under any circumstances shall any provision of this Section be held, deemed, or construed to require the furnishing of more than two copies of such statement. Any person having taken any written, recorded, or transcribed statement, or having possession of any written, recorded, or transcribed statement or a copy of such statement, by any injured person with respect to any accident or with respect to any injury to person or property shall, at the request of the person who made such statement or his personal representative, furnish the person who made such statement or his personal representative a true and complete copy thereof, within twenty days after written demand. No written, recorded, or transcribed statement by an injured person shall be admissible in evidence or otherwise used in any manner in any civil action relating to the subject matter thereof, if it shall be made to appear that thereafter a person having possession of such statement refused, upon request of the person who made the statement or his personal representatives, to furnish him a true and complete copy thereof.
