Please confirm whether this is an investigator or a surveyor who is appointed to investigate. Under law, only a surveyor report is valid. An investigator is not appointed under any law and thus his report cannot adversely affect you or your rights.

In case this is an investigator and not a surveyor, you can make known to the insurance company and him that his report cannot adversely affect your right. In any case, you can always ask for a copy of your written statements but it is better you question the locus of the investigator to investigate in the first place and ask about the law under which he is appointed and under which he report is valid.
