If you are ever injured in an accident which you believe is the fault of another, it is important to immediately take action. The police and ambulance should be called right away and you should go immediately to the hospital or a doctor. Do not wait several days or weeks before your injuries are examined by a physician. If you are physically able, you should give the police a detailed account of what happened and make sure the names and contact information of all witnesses and parties have been obtained as well as their statements. If a representative of the at-fault party’s insurance contacts you, they will likely want an audiotaped interview of you about the accident and your injuries. It is important to consult with an attorney before agreeing to such an interview. The at-fault party’s insurance is hoping you will settle your claim without a full appreciation of your claim’s value. Denver personal injury attorney Alaurice Tafoya-Modi can help you assess the true value of your claim. If you are injured in a accident, contact the Tafoya Law Firm today for a free consultation.
