, it is a good idea to speak with an experienced Denver car accident lawyer
. Here are some frequently asked questions about Colorado car accident
Q: If I am in a car accident, and the police come, should I talk to them?
A: Yes, you should speak to the police. There is no need to tell the police more than simply the facts of the accident. You should not say anything that indicates blame; don’t accept blame for the accident, and don’t accuse anyone else of fault in the accident. The accident reports that police officers take are not always accurate, but it is best not to give the police a reason to think badly of you, either by claiming responsibility or by blaming someone else. A dedicated Denver car accident lawyer
can often conduct an independent investigation, and demonstrate the facts of the case, even if the police officer got them wrong.
Q: Do I have to tell my insurance company about my car accident?
A: Yes, you do need to notify your insurance company. When it comes to insurance, in many cases the less you say the better, particularly when it comes to the other driver’s insurance company. This is another example of why it is a good idea to speak with a Denver car accident lawyer
who can help ensure that nothing that is said to the insurance company is twisted in order to be used against you.
Q: What should I do if the car insurance company won’t pay my claim?
A: Unfortunately, it is standard practice at some insurance companies to simply deny large claims in order to protect their own bottom line. The claim you filed after your car accident
has been denied, or if they are offering you a settlement that you don’t believe will cover the cost of the accident, speak with a dedicated Denver car accident attorney to discuss your options.
