What to Do After an Accident
If you’ve been involved in an accident, there are a number of steps you should take, especially if you want to file a personal injury claim and have a chance at securing the compensation you’re entitled to. The first thing you should do after an accident, no matter what is to seek medical attention if you’re injured. Even if you’re only experiencing mild symptoms or don’t appear to be initially injured, injuries can appear and involve hours and even days following the accident. Only a doctor can assess your physical condition and determine if you need treatment.
It’s also important to document your accident as much as possible. Take photos of your injuries, the accident scene, and any other damage, such as vehicle damage in a car accident. Collect the information of others involved in your accident, and gather witness testimonies if possible. While you may think insurance companies will easily understand your situation and give you your desired compensation, the reality is that most will try to avoid having to pay victims by evading liability.
How Our Lawyers Can Help
Our law firm’s long track record of success helping injured clients hold at-fault parties responsible speaks to our commitment. Whether you’ve been harmed by negligence or intentional conduct, we’re able to strengthen your case by investigating your accident and collecting evidence that includes crash reports, witness testimonies, expert testimonies, and more.
The reality of your situation is that without an attorney on your case, you are far less likely to achieve the amount of compensation you’re entitled to. Insurance companies and others take advantage of victims all the time and use what they say against them in court to avoid paying them.
Our lawyers can not only take over communication with insurance companies but recover the following damages for you:
- Medical bills, such as ambulance rides, surgeries, hospital stays, and medications
- Lost wages from missing days, weeks, and even months of work
- Property damage, including the cost of car repairs
- Pain and suffering
Don’t take a risk on bettering your future by going through this process alone. Allow our team to listen to your story and make a difference in your life.
