What you do after a car accident can make the difference in how much compensation you receive. After the crash, you likely have more on your plate than you can handle. However, time does not stand still, especially when insurance claim money is at stake. There are things that you must do, all the while the insurance company may be hectoring you. The time right after a car accident is critical.
The first thing that you must do is get medical help. The most obvious reason is that you have been injured, and you need to recover. Even if you do not suffer life-threatening injuries, you could have lingering effects. Additionally, you should receive thorough and accurate documentation of your injuries and the treatment the injuries received. 388CEDA can assist you with that. We have a number of doctors available who treat typical car accident injuries. These are the services that we offer:
In the meantime, the insurance company may be calling you to try to get you to talk. It is important to remember that the insurance company representative is not your friend. These companies care most about their bottom line and not about you. They may be trying to get you to give a statement or sign a document. Do not do anything on your own. If the insurance company is asking you to sign anything right after the accident, chances are that it is going to help them much more than you.
Instead, you should seek out a car accident lawyer as soon as you can after your accident, so you are not flying blind on your own. Chances are that you do not know much about insurance companies and how they operate nor should you. This puts you at a distinct disadvantage when you are trying to get the compensation that you may deserve. You may not even be able to receive money if the insurance company finds you at fault. Not only must you show that someone else was negligent, but you must also then negotiate a fair settlement that adequately compensates you.
Your car accident lawyer could fight on your behalf, and there are ways that you can help them. The biggest thing that they need is the documentation to show what your claim is worth. Here is what you can give:
One of the biggest concerns that people have with hiring an attorney is cost. The good news is that personal injury cases do not saddle you with expensive legal bills that you do not have the money to pay. When you hire a car accident lawyer, you do not need to pay anything upfront. Instead, your lawyer is only paid if you are successful in your case.
With that in mind, you may be wondering how you hire the best attorney for your case. You may never have worked with a lawyer before and could have trouble telling the difference because every lawyer promises to fight hard for you against the insurance companies. In addition, you might not have the time or strength to interview various lawyers because you are dealing with doctor’s appointments and stress.
