attorney for the injured
If you have been injured due to another person's negligent actions, you don't have to deal with the consequences yourself. A thoughtful and knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve for your time off work, hospital and recovery bills, and your pain and suffering.
Auto accident - What do i do?
If you have been in an auto accident, you should call the police. If you are able, be sure to get as many photographs of the scene as soon as possible. Photographs should include an overview of the accident, the damage to all cars involved, and the other driver's license, license plate, and insurance card. Get as much information as you can - the other driver's insurance and contact information is very important, along with contact information for any witnesses.
If you are injured, you should seek medical attention immediately. However, not all injuries may be felt immediately - if you start to hurt later, seek medical attention as soon as possible and tell your doctor all relevant information about your injuries.
The other driver's insurance company will likely try to contact you - do not give a recorded statement to the insurance company. They are not interested in your best interests! Call a personal injury attorney to answer your questions.
When should i call a personal injury attorney?
Ideally, as soon as possible after your injury. The other person's insurance company or attorney may try to contact you right away to negotiate a settlement that is worth far less than you deserve. They are not your attorney, and are not interested in you being properly compensated. An aggressive and professional personal injury attorney has experience dealing with insurance companies and can get you the compensation you deserve. The earlier you contact an attorney after an injury or car accident, the sooner you can rest assured that your rights are being aggressively defended and focus on recovering from your injuries.
