I am very sorry to hear about your incident and glad you are feeling better. It is always very important not give a recorded statement to the other parties insurance company. They are trying to lock you into a statement before you have the advice of an attorney. Personal injury attorneys are typically paid on a contingency basis, therefore, it doesn't cost you anything unless they make a recovery on your behalf. Because you were taken by ambulance to the hospital and have followed up with other physicians, you may have outstanding medical bills. Additionally, you do have some residual symptoms with your arm and may have nerve damage. For these reasons, you may want to protect your intersts and retain a personal injury attorney in your area on a contingency basis that will not charge you for fees or costs unless they recover.
